CURRENT RESEARCH: Stem Cells, Wnt signaling and Tissue Repair

A common theme linking our work together are Wnt signals.  Work from many laboratories, including our own, has shown that Wnt proteins are essential for the control over stem cells. How this is achieved is far from clear and is the subject of studies in the lab, both in vivo and in cell culture.  In vivo, a particular question we address is how physiological changes, such as those occurring during hormonal stimuli, injury or tissue degeneration have an impact on the self-renewal signals and on stem cell biology.
