The focus of my research group is to understand molecular mechanisms underlying cell fate specification in the developing brain and in human neural progenitor cells using cell-based models of neuronal differentiation. Our current focus is to learn how to direct and efficiently drive controlled differentiation of human stem cells into subtype-specific neurons for use in biomedical applications and cell replacement therapy.
