We study kidney organogenesis using the zebrafish to explore conserved molecular mechanisms underlying kidney cell specification, differentiation, and organ patterning. We also study organ pathologies that results from mutations in genes required for cilia biogenesis and function. These include kidney cystic disease, retinal degeneration and left-right asymmetry defects.

Our research focuses on using the zebrafish to better understand human cancer and to develop novel insights into how it is that tumors can be remade following conventional chemotherapeutic intervention. Uncovering the downstream molecular pathways that lead to relapse will be integral to identifying novel drugs for the treatment of cancer.
