Our lab’s overarching goal is to better understand complex biological systems. To this end, we employ a broad range of biochemical, biophysical, functional genomic, synthetic and computational approaches. Our work is focused on two problems – the regulatory networks that control spatio-temporal gene expression during development, and the function of glia in nervous system development and homoeostasis.
