The primary aim of our research group is to elucidate the mechanism that underlies the development of the Neural Crest. We would like to know how Neural Crest cells acquire their identity within the ectoderm and how their migration and differentiation is controlled.
Our lab belongs to the UCL Research Department of Cell and Developmental Biology, the UCL Centre for Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine and the UCL Neuroscience Domain.
