Developmental Biology

My lab aims to understand the mechanism of embryonic development and congential disorders.  We approach them at genetic, molecular, cellular, tissue and in vivo levels.  We are also interested in the similarity and distinction between embryos and cancer, because they are both dynamic in gene regulation as well as in cell motility, tissue organisation and cell proliferation.  The main themes of current projects are as follows:
