Name: Richard M Harland
Position: Professor
Research Description:
The objective of our work is to understand early vertebrate development at the molecular level. We study this problem in both the amphibian Xenopus, and in the mouse. Xenopus embryos are large and easily manipulated, so that the function of various macromolecules, such as RNA and protein, can be assayed by microinjection into living embryos. Functional assays in Xenopus can then be complemented by genetic knockouts in the mouse, to gain fuller understanding of the normal requirements for gene action in the developing embryo.

Professor Richard Harland was elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society (FRS) on April 16th, 2019. 
He is currently the CH Li Distinguished Professor of Genetics and Senior Associate Dean of Biological Sciences, Genomics and Development, Department of Molecular and Cell Biology, University of California, Berkeley
