Research Overview

Developmental biology of the embryonic and fetal lung including branching morphogenesis, cytodifferentiation and alveolization.

Injury response and repair of the developing lung, including, epithelial proliferation, apoptosis and migration and identification of pulmonary stem cells in mechanisms of injury repair.

Tissue regeneration including molecular mechanisms of growth and discovery of novel targets for lung, pancreas, skin, gut, retina and craniofacial tissue regeneration.
