Our researh interests spans from neurodevelopment to neurodegeneration, from hematopoiesis to leukemia, from ciliogenesis to ciliopathies. To understand the mechanisms underlying organogenesis and disease processes we primarily use zebrafish, whose genes (and function) are surprisingly similar to their human counterparts.
