I am interested in the regulation of vertebrate development.  Using zebrafish as a model system, my lab manipulates the expression of various genes, and then characterizes the developmental defects.  Of particular interest are how complex carbohydrates regulate early morphogenic events.


Possible Student Projects:

  • Requirement of st8sialyltransferases for the migration of cranial nerves in zebrafish
  • Function of st3sialyltransferases during regulation of circadian rhythms in zebrafish
  • Functional redundancy between sialyltransferase family members during zebrafish embryonic development
