RESEARCH FOCUS

  • Study the regulatory genes and pathways that control embryonic development
  • Evolution of the Hox gene, which has undergone changes in both its expression pattern and protein sequence to switch its function from an ancestral homeotic gene to a segmentation gene in Drosophila
  • Modeling diseases of insulin-signaling pathways in Drosophila
