Morphogenesis and Differentiation Lab


Welcome to the morphogenesis and differentiation lab website.

We are interested in cellular organization, morphogenesis and differentiation during stem cell differentiation and embryogenesis. We use different stem cell differentiation models and embryogenesis in Drosophila as systems to address questions of onset of epithelial like plasma membrane and sub-cellular organization and their role in patterning.

The cartoon by Bill Watterson below summarizes our philosophy of research better than we can state it in a million words!
