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.... Read more about Iain A. Drummond, Ph.D.

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.... Read more about David M. Langenau, PhD

The lung is a vertebrate invention that allowed the early tetrapods to leave the water and colonize the land. Oxygen is the essential actor in aerobic metabolism and the lung's cardinal function is to mediate the efficient transfer of oxygen from the atmosphere to the circulatory system. Given the lung's essential function, diseases of the lung are often life-threatening or incapacitating.... Read more about Jayaraj Rajagopal, MD
