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
