The Artinger lab is a highly collaborative research laboratory that is focused on understanding the molecular and genetic mechanisms involved in the development of the neural crest. Neural crest cells are born at the neural plate border, and have the extraordinary ability to retain stem cell-like characteristics. Once specified, they migrate through the embryo and give rise to a diverse array of derivatives, including peripheral neurons and glia, pigment cells and craniofacial cartilage, which form most of the vertebrate face. Thus, the neural crest is an attractive model system to study the gene regulatory networks involved in cell fate determination, migration, differentiation and in disease.

To request any disability-related accommodations for this event please contact the event coordinator at least three business days prior to the event.
