Research Interests

Molecular EmbryologyThe aim of our research is to explain the molceular basis of embryonic determination or how cell fates and organ formation are specified during animal development. We study the induction of mesoderm, the formation of the nervous system and the development of the pancreas. Most of our work makes use of developing frog and mouse embryos.
