Research Description

Our group is interested in mechanisms sustaining development of the nervous system and adult neurogenesis, with the retina as our principal model. The retina is indeed a model system for developmental neurobiologists, essentially because of its laminated structure with a limited number of neuron types and its accessibility.

Our key questions are : How proliferation and fate of neural precursors are controlled during embryonic retinogenesis ? What are the molecular mechanisms sustaining neural stem cell activity at post-embryonic stages ? How retinal stem cells participate in the repair of damaged retina ?
