Research Description

Our research centers on regulation of anterior neural development by developmentally regulated transcription factors. We are currently focusing on the retinal homeobox (Rx) and aristaless-related homeobox (Arx) genes, members of a subfamily of paired-type homeobox genes. We hope to understand the mechanism by which these and other anterior neural-specific transcription factors regulate development of the eye and forebrain
