Description: Research in the lab is directed towards an understanding of the cellular activities that underlie the development of epithelial tissues and in particular towards the role played by cell interactions in the regulation of these activities. Our longer term aim is to focus on the interdependence of cellular events and the way in which they are co-ordinated to produce a mature tissue of defined size and shape, in which the patterned differentiation of cells forms a functionally integrated structure. A particular interest is to understand how the physiological attributes of a tissue are defined during development.
