ABOUT US

Our lab investigates cellular mechanisms of early oocyte differentiation, from the stem cell to the follicle.

We have discovered a novel cellular organizer that integrates multiple cellular processes such as mitosis, meiosis, cell polarity, prion-like mechanisms, mechanical regulation and ciliary functions in the oocyte. Its investigation allows us to study how these programs are coordinated by the cell on a single platform of early oogenesis.

We use zebrafish as our model and utilize methods of advanced genetics and quantitative microscopy.
