Research synopsis

Our research focuses on cartilage development in vertebrate embryos. We study the molecular mechanisms that are involved in cell fate determination during cartilage formation and patterning. As signaling events that occur in embryogenesis may be used again in the adult, our work will lead to a better understanding of cartilage-related birth defects as well as arthritis and cartilage repair.
