Projects

Our major interests are concentrated around the idea that peripheral nerves are essential for development of organs since they contribute multipotent cells to the local tissues and serve as delivery routes for progenitors giving rise, for example, to melanocytes, parasympathetic neurons, residential mesenchymal cells in the bone marrow and to dental mesenchymal stem cells.

Single Cell Analysis

We apply single cell transcriptomics analysis in mouse, hydra, chick and zebrafish with an aim to discover the major principles of tissue heterogeneity, stem cell regulation, evolution of novel cell types and transitions between gene regulatory networks.
