Illuminating mechanisms of cell movement and survival

Defining and solving fundamental questions in cell and developmental biology using Drosophila genetics, mammalian cell culture, and state-of-the-art imaging approaches.

Our Mission

To uncover the fundamental mechanisms that control how cells build and maintain normal adult tissues so we can harness these mechanisms for the benefit of human health.
