RNA-Mediated Genetic Interference; Drosophila Signal Transduction Pathways

Our laboratory studies how molecular signals are decoded into information that controls cell differentiation and morphogenesis during development. Specifically, we study RNA-mediated genetic interference (RNAi), signal transduction during neuron morphogenesis, and receptor tryosine kinase signaling.
