ROLE OF INTRINSIC VERSUS EXTRINSIC CUES IN CELL TYPE DETERMINATION DURING DEVELOPMENT AND REGENERATION
Grant number: DE120101311 | Funding period: 2016 - 2017
During development all of the different cell types are generated by the action of genes and also signals from the embryo that read out which cell types are present or missing. This project studies how much environmental signals affect cell type generation developmentally and if they can be used to regenerate only the types missing in different diseases.
