Current Research

I am interested how cells, during embryonic development, perceive and are influenced by their surroundings, resulting in alterations of cell behaviour that ultimately condition cell fate. In particular, I aim to comprehend how the massive morphogenesis underlying pancreas development can help regulate the acquisition of the an endocrine fate by a small but pivotal fraction of the pancreatic progenitor cells.
