Current Research Interests

Multi-cellular organisms including mammals begin life as a single cell, the fertilized egg, which undergoes a series of changes to give rise to the complex adult organism. This includes growth, division, cell migration and morphogenesis. These events are highly regulated and organised both spatially and temporally. We are attempting to understand the molecular basis underlying these events in murine organogenesis. There are three major areas of research in my laboratory:

  • Stem cells and the molecular and cellular basis for the co-ordinated regulation of proliferation, cell differentiation and patterning in the intestinal epithelium
  • The Role of the Cdx, polycomb and trithorax group of genes in the regulation of axial skeletal and nervous system development
  • Angiogenins and cytotoxic RNAses in Disease and in health
