My laboratory uses genetically modified mouse models, in combination with conventional and cutting-edge technologies, to study how the complex architecture of the mammalian pancreas and liver is established during development, and how is disrupted and repaired after injury. We also use mouse models to sudy mechanisms that promote tumor formation and metastasis in the pancreas, processes that help re-establishing zonation in the injured liver, and mechanisms that regulate the plasticity of mature...[Read full text]My laboratory uses genetically modified mouse models, in combination with conventional and cutting-edge technologies, to study how the complex architecture of the mammalian pancreas and liver is established during development, and how is disrupted and repaired after injury.
