The beginning of a new life is one of the most enigmatic and dynamic events in Biology. The long term goal of my laboratory is to understand how post-transcriptional regulation of RNA and proteins orchestrates development of a single cell oocyte into a whole embryo and how these mechanisms can be extrapolated to other biological transitions such as cellular reprogramming or malignant transformation.
To address these questions, my laboratory focuses on the mechanisms of post-transcriptional regulation during vertebrate embryogenesis using zebrafish as a model system. This approach allows us to dissect the process of reprogramming in vivo within the context of a whole organism. The combination of fish embryo microinjection together with powerful genetic, genomic, and proteomic approaches provides a unique platform to address these central questions in biology.
