Overview

Work in our lab focuses on understanding the cell biology of neuronal differentiation during development. We use the embryonic spinal cord as our model system and utilise cutting-edge live tissue imaging techniques to image cell behaviour leading to neuronal differentiation in this tissue. The overall aim of our work is to understand how the complicated molecular changes taking place during neurogenesis are translated into the striking cell behaviour that physically drives this process, with the longer term goal of devising strategies to prevent or relieve the symptoms of neurodevelopmental diseases and dementia.
