Coordinating cell shape, fate and position in epithelial barrier tissues
How cell shape and mechanics controls tissue turnover and function is still poorly understood. In the squamous stratifying epithelium of the skin, the epidermis, stereotypic changes in cell shape guide the differentiation and upward migration of cells. Using mostly the epidermis as a model system, my laboratory asks how cell shape, fate and position are coordinated, and how the integration of adhe

Heterogeneity of the vasculature: novel origins and functions of endothelial cells in organ growth and regeneration
Over the past years my lab has used the zebrafish model to address the molecular and cellular underpinnings of blood and lymphatic vessel formation, and the instructive role the vasculature plays during embryonic development, organogenesis, and regeneration. Our discoveries have greatly contributed to the current understanding of the origins, specification, and sprouting of lymphatic endothelial c

Extraembryonic epiboly, tissue mechanics and embryo morphogenesis
In yolk-rich embryos, such as those of teleost fish, the morphogenetic movements that give rise to the embryo often coexist with the epiboly movement of extraembryonic tissues, which allow all cellular domains of the blastula to engulf the egg. Although in recent years we have gained much knowledge about the morphogenetic mechanisms that give rise to the embryo proper, the role of extraembryonic e
