Research Statement:

The major focus of research in my lab is to define mechanisms by which secreted growth factors and their cognate receptors control branching morphogenesis, formation of a contractile ureter, and generation of nephrons. We study these mechanisms using primary kidney cell cultures, tissue explants, transgenic mice and 'knock-out' mice.
