Our research

We aim to understand how the embryonic brain develops. We study neurogenesis of the developing cerebral cortex, whereby neurons are produced from neural progenitor populations. Defective neurogenesis impacts neuron production, and can result in neurodevelopmental disorders affecting brain size and structure. Amongst the research questions we are asking in the lab are the following:

We tackle these complex questions using multidisciplinary approaches including live imaging of brain slices and neural progenitors, mouse genetics, and functional genomics.
