Our research interests are in understanding the cellular and molecular pathways that underlie pattern formation in the vertebrate embryo. We are particularly interested in how cells begin to acquire specific cell fates and morphologies early in development.  Our most recent focus has been on the formation and differentiation of the skeletal muscle system. The vertebrate model that we work with is the African clawed frog, Xenopus laevis. This model lends itself well to the study of embryology because the aquatic frog can be easily reared in a laboratory environment, the females lay hundreds of eggs, which are easily fertilized and observed in a culture dish until hatching into a tadpole.
