OUR RESEARCH FOCUS

Our research focuses on studying the molecular signaling systems and transcriptional networks that orchestrate organogenesis during embryonic development. To this aim we use mostly the mouse with its superbe genetics as a model embryo. The developing embryo is a stunning testimony to the intricate mechanisms that control patterning and differentiation of functional tissues and organs and to the evolutionary variations in these mechanisms that gave rise to the diversity of modern vertebrates. One of our main focuses is to study the self-regulatory signaling systems and gene regulatory networks that control vertebrate limb development.
