Apoptosis and DNA repair in C. elegans


Postdoctoral Fellow:  University of California, Santa Barbara
Ph.D.: University of California, Santa Barbara
M.Sc.:  Carleton University
B.Sc.:  McMaster University

Fields of Interest:

  • Genetic Models of Development and Disease
  • Functional Genomics and Proteomics

Research Interests:

We are interested in cell autonomous and cell-nonautonomous mechanisms of apoptosis and DNA repair in the nematode worm C. elegans. We are also interested in understanding mechanisms by which the cerebral cavernous malformation (CCM) proteins control excretory canal development.
