Cell biology of morphogenesis; innate immune responses

We study several morphogenetic processes in Drosophila development: the transcriptional cascade causing cell shape changes in the future mesoderm during gastrulation; the role of RNA localisation in the tracheal system; and the role of cell polarity and junctions in both systems as well as during wound healing. In zebrafish, we investigate interferon signalling, inflammation, and novel immune recognition molecules using genetics and live imaging techniques.
