research description:

We are interested in how brain neural and vascular development is regulated by radial glial neural progenitor cell signaling. For brain vascular development, we are studying the molecular signaling mechanisms by which radial glia regulate nascent vessel stabilization. For brain neural development, we are studying how intracellular signaling and transcriptional regulation in radial glia control the timing of brain astroglial development and prevents neuronal migration disorder.
