Our research focuses on the genetic and cellular mechanisms that control embryonic development. In particular we are interested in the processes required for closure of the neural tube and for development of the vertebrate limb and lung. Our approaches include a forward genetic screen in mice to identify mutations that affect specific processes of embryonic development and embryological and molecular manipulation of the chick embryo.
