My research investigates the genetic control of vertebrate embryonic tooth development. In particular we study how cell signaling controls cellular behaviors such as proliferation during tooth organogenesis. We use zebrafish and a variety of other fish species as models in this research because we are also interested in how developmental mechanisms have changed during evolution.
