Research summary

Our research group is interested in how embryonic patterns are produced during development, with a particular focus on interrogating the influences of the molecular and mechanoceullar environment on these processes. We take a multidisciplinary approach incorporating aspects of several fields including cell biology, developmental biology, mathematics and engineering, using the chick embryo as our primary model. Our goal is to understand the core processes which drive vertebrate periodic pattern formation to provide insight into the causality of associated birth disorders and help guide future regenerative medicine strategies. 

Current research interests

Periodic patterning during vertebrate development. Tracheal formation. Development of novel avian transgenic technologies

Past research interests

Fingerprint pattern formation, hair follicle patterning, mammalian skin development, primordial germ cell migration and specification.
