"Molecular and cellular control of skeletal progenitors in the vertebrate skull"

Proper organ formation requires the preservation of stem cells across embryonic and postnatal development. I study the vertebrate skull as a model to understand fundamental features of organogenesis. By integrating next-generation sequencing approaches with imaging and genetics in mouse and zebrafish to interrogate cranial suture development, I will share how my research is unraveling the molecular programs that control progenitors and skeletal stem cells as they meet the shifting needs of the growing calvarial bones.
