Research Summary

Our laboratory is concerned with several aspects of neurogenesis and nerve outgrowth in the developing murine nervous system. In the cortex, we are working with several mutants involved in the trafficking of developmentally relevant signalling molecules within primary cilia. We are also investigating the role that histone deacetylases play in the development of the forebrain. In the periphery, we employ an organotypic slice culture system to manipulate and image spinal nerve innervation into the forelimb.
