Research Description

At a Glance

  • Formation and differentiation of Drosophila neurons and glia
  • Regulation of nervous system transcription


Our laboratory is concerned with the molecular mechanisms that govern the development of the Drosophila central nervous system, including: (1) how nervous system precursor cells are generated, and (2) how neurons and glia acquire their differentiated properties. The primary focus of the lab is using genomic technologies to study the regulation of transcription during neuronal and glial development.
