Gross Anatomy

Jan L. Christian, PhD

Cell-cell signaling molecules such as bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) play critical roles in specifying cell fate during vertebrate embryogenesis. Strict regulation of BMP activity is required to prevent birth defects, degenerative diseases and cancer. Our research program has two major foci: 1) Understanding how BMP activity is regulated by cle... Read More

David Hutcheson, PhD

ResearchMy research interests focus on the development of functional neural circuits. While neurons have been described in great detail at a single cell level, a neurons functional role in behaving organisms requires an understanding of the neural circuits within which they operate. Description of functional circuits in vertebrates has been difficu... Read More

Neuroanatomy

Richard I. Dorsky, PhD

Spinal Cord NeurogenesisWe are interested in the functions of Wnt signaling and Tcf3 function in embryonic spinal cord development and regeneration. In addition to the roles of Wnt/Tcf-mediated transcription in spinal cord patterning and proliferation (Bonner, et al., Dev Biol, 2008), Tcf3 acts as a transcriptional repressor to prevent progenitor d...
