Tissue growth and tissue organization control by the large cadherins Fat and Dachsous
Postdoctoral Fellow: Stanford University
Ph.D.: Stanford University
Fields of Interest:
- Cellular and Molecular Structure and Function
- Genetic Models of Development and Disease
A major focus of the laboratory is the study of how tissue growth and tissue organization are controlled by the large cadherins Fat and Dachsous. We use Drosophila, tissue culture and mouse models to understand why mutations in the Fat/Dachsous pathway leads to cystic kidney disease and cancer.
