Grant N. Wheeler


Senior Lecturer

Research Description

My group works on the molecular events that govern the origin and migration of different cell types within the developing embryo. Projects currently ongoing include;

    * The effects of Wnt signalling on early development and later organogenesis. In particular we are studying the function of frizzleds in neural crest, neural and heart development
    * The role of the cell adhesion/migration in development. We are currently focused on matrix metalloproteinases and their roles in early development.
    * Chemical genetic screens to identify small molecules that affect aspects of development and macrophage cell migration in vivo
