My lab investigates the morphogenesis of epithelial tubes during development and disease. Broadly, we want to know how epithelial tubes first polarise, how they open (rather than close) and why they break during disease. We are currently particularly interested in understanding the links between cell-cell adhesion, actomyosin contractility and cellular mechanics during secondary neurulation. To investigate these processes, we use high resolution imaging, CRISPR and optogenetics approaches in vivo, with the developing zebrafish neural tube and in vitro, within multicellular mouse embryonic stem cell cultures.
