BIOGRAPHY AND RESEARCH INTERESTS
***No longer involved in zebrafish research.***

I am studying the role of One-eyed pinhead in Nodal signaling during early zebrafish development. I am investigating the roles of One-eyed-pinhead in mesoderm and endoderm development, organizer formation, gastrulation, and prechordal plate development.
