Research Summary

We investigate Drosophila CNS development. Current interests are (1) how stem cell-like neural precursors (neuroblasts) establish cell polarity and divide asymmetrically; (2) how neuroblasts maintain stem cell-like features as they divide to produce differentiating progeny; (3) how transcription factors regulate temporal identity within neuroblast lineages; and (4) the genetic program governing the production of motoneurons, serotonergic interneurons, or glia.

We are located at the University of Oregon's Institute of Neuroscience. We are funded by the NIH and by Howard Hughes Medical Institute.
