Interest of the lab

Our group is interested in understanding the molecular mechanisms controlling stem cell maintenance, lineage specification and differentiation. These processes have to be tightly controlled to ensure self-renewing tissues with a life-long supply of cells during homeostasis. We explore epithelial stem and progenitor cells in the hair follicle and oesophagus  to understand cellular and molecular mechanisms of development, homeostasis and disease.
