My lab is interested in understanding how tissue growth is controlled. We study both the signaling pathways and the metabolic pathways that regulate cell growth, tissue growth, and final tissue size. We do this mainly using Drosophila and human tissue culture. This is relevant for both normal development and cancer biology.
