I am a PhD student in the Stern lab, in the Department of Cell and Developmental Biology, UCL. I study the role of 'organizers' in early development. Organizers are signalling regions in the embryo which induce and pattern surrounding tissue during development. I use the chick as a model to look at how organizers are formed, their properties and how these correspond to organizer function. I am particularly interested in Hensen's node which is an organizer that induces and patterns neural tissue.
