  • Graduate Opportunities

    Over the years my laboratory has been involved in studying several aspects of fish and mouse embryonic development and as such we have generated many spin-off research projects that require further investigation by individuals at the undergraduate, M.Sc., Ph.D, and PDF levels. Many of these projects deal with members of the Wnt signaling pathway that dictate and direct the cell-cell signaling events that pattern the developing embryo. Although our research is focused on the Wnt pathway, we are in no way limited by them. To that end, the lab offers considerable training and we use state-of-the-art molecular, cellular, and biochemical approaches to elucidate a number of diverse biological problems associated with development.
