STATEMENT OF RESEARCH INTERESTS
We are investigating the molecular mechanisms, which regulate neurogenesis in the zebrafish embryo and adult central nervous system (CNS). We are particularly interested in the function of transcriptional regulators (TRs) and their cis-regulatory element (CRE) that control their specific expression in the embryonic spinal cord and adult telencephalon.
