Research in this area focuses on the structural, biochemical, molecular, genetic and cellular mechanisms that govern cell behavior and pattern formation during embryonic development. Model organisms used in these studies include fly, fish, frog, and mouse.
A deeper understanding of how organisms are made and how environmental and genetic perturbations can result in birth defects will lead to our improved ability to regenerate and repair organs damaged by disease, trauma or congenital defects.
