Neurodevelopment - Cell Lineage, Neuronal Migration, Axonal Targeting and Craniofacial DevelopmentPosted by: National Institutes of Health (NIH)
Posted date: 2019-Jul-23
Projects focus on differentiation and migration of GnRH cells, olfactory ensheathing cells and olfactory axon outgrowth during development of the craniofacial region. Prenatally, GnRH neurons originate in the nasal region and migrate on olfactory axons into the brain. Current projects examine:
Laboratory uses multidisciplinary approaches: cre/lox mice, transgenic lines, imaging, nasal explants, acute slices, videomicroscopy, calcium imaging, electrophysiology, immunocytochemistry, single-cell PCR, CRISPR and subtractive cDNA screening.
