Biology of Cornea Epithelial Stem Cells
and Lens Regeneration

Development of new lab model
Crepidula atrasolea

Research in our lab is aimed at understanding the molecular and cellular events that regulate the biology of cornea stem cells, and their potential to generate additional cell fates, such as lens cells.

Evolution of Developmental
Processes

Development of new lab model
Crepidula atrasolea

A major goal of our lab is to understand the evolution of developmental processes leading to the formation of diverse larval and adult body plans in a large group of protostome phyla collectively referred to as the "Spiralia."
