DIFFERENTIATION AND FATE IN THE DEVELOPING SYMPATHETIC GANGLIA
Grant number: 1063822 | Funding period: 2014 - 2017
This project seeks to understand how a small number of founder cells can divide and differentiate into the myriad different types of cells that make up the mature nervous system. It uses modern genetic techniques to follow progenitor cells as they mature into mature neurons.
