Gene regulatory mechanisms underlying neuronal differentiation
We are interested in how transcription factors and genome remodelling drive differentiation of neurons. Using the wonderful Drosophila model and cell specific profiling methods, we are investigating the mechanisms that drive the maturation of newly born neurons, causing them to lose cell fate plasticity and acquire specific properties,.
