||Morphogenetic mechanisms of vertebrate craniofacial development |
|Project description: |
Our lab studies the early events of craniofacial development using teleost fish, zebrafish (Danio rerio) and Mexican tetra fish (Astyanax mexicanus) as model animals. We are particularly focused on evolution and development of the jaw structures. These include dentitions, sensory systems, and jaw bones. Formation of these structures involve complex interactions and we are interested in finding the molecular signaling pathways which regulate their development. This research addresses the questions related to the human congenital malformations and evolutionary development.
Applications are invited for fully funded studies which lead to the Master degree in Oral Biology in the area of molecular mechanisms of craniofacial development.
