Research Summary

  • Stem Cells
    In my lab we study the genetic control of the balance between stem cell proliferation and differentiation. For this we use the C. elegans germ line as a model.
     
  • microRNA level control
    We study how protein levels of the microRNA-induced silencing complex (miRISC) are regulated such that they are in proper abundance relative to microRNA levels
