Research

Every cell has a story to tell. New technologies to sequence RNA and DNA from individual cells are providing unprecedented insights into the biology of complex tissues. We use single cell genomic and transcriptomic data to reconstruct differentiation pathways, lineage hierarchies, and tissue heterogeneity in human organs and organoids, mouse brains and lungs, amphibian appendages, and any other system we find fascinating!


 

Our primary goal is to understand the mechanisms controlling cell fate decisions during development and regeneration, with a particular interest in illuminating uniquely human biology.


Please contact us if you are interested in learning more about our research. We work at the intersection of many fields and are always looking for ambitious scientists with a background in developmental biology, tissue engineering, informatics, statistics, and/or physics.
