Cardiovascular Development
Our lab is interested in the transcriptional pathways regulating tissue and organ formation during mammalian embryonic development. Current work in the lab is focused on defining the pathways regulating the development of cardiac and skeletal muscle, the vascular endothelium, and the neural crest. We are also using a combination of conditional gene knockouts and fate mapping techniques in mice to elucidate the embryological origins of the heart and ultimately to define how the mature heart is assembled.
