We study cell-cell interactions & how systemic changes influence these interactions using skin as a model

Research Projects

Our goal is to discover the principles and molecular nature of cell-cell interactions governing development, regeneration, and injury repair. We use the mammalian skin as our model, a highly assessable organ with diverse cell types and multiple populations of somatic stem cells.

  • The Cellular and Molecular Identity of the Stem Cell Niche
  • Function and Biology of Transit-Amplifying Cells
  • How Systemic Changes Regulate Stem Cell Behavior
