Our research focuses on two areas: Vertebrate Development and Behavior. We mostly use zebrafish as a model system because genetic, genomic and imaging approaches can be combined to study complex behaviors and developmental processes in a vertebrate. We are also committed to training the next generation of leaders in biomedical research. More details can be found on our Research page.


1. Development
How do morphogens and gene regulatory networks determine cell fate, movement and differentiation?


2. Behavior
How do neuropeptides and neural circuits regulate sleep, wakefulness and other behaviors?
