Researcher interests: Gene regulation in spatial and temporal decisions in the early vertebrate embryo. Genes that regulate the dorso-ventral axis of the embryo. Regulation of the anterior-posterior axis of the embryo, interactions and regulation of Vitamin-A derived signals in the early embryo. Analysis of the teratogenic effects of Vitamin A. Cloning and characterization of novel developmental genes in higher vertebrates. Homeobox genes in the establishment of the early embryonic axes.
