Early Development, Epigenetics, and Stem Cell Biology

MMG investigators in this group are interested in the molecular mechanisms controlling embryonic stem (ES) cell as well as tissue-specific stem cell growth and differentiation, the early stages of embryogenesis, and the application of these findings to the regenerative medicine. Specific projects include genetic and epigenetic mechanisms that regulate ES cell differentiation, genomic imprinting in ES cell biology, the impact of aging on stem cells and tissue regeneration, and kinase signaling pathways in Drosophila development.
