Vertebrate neural development

We study how the central nervous system (CNS) is formed in embryos. Our goal is to identify the genes involved in spinal cord development and determine how they work to produce and organise the different types of nerve cells found in this part of the CNS. We use a range of molecular, imaging and modelling approaches in mouse, chick and zebrafish embryos.

Keywords: Neural development / spinal cord / Hedgehog signaling / vertebrate embryos
