Research in the Artinger laboratory is focused on
understanding of the molecular and genetic mechanisms involved in the
development of the neural crest. Neural crest cells are born at the neural
plate border, and have the extraordinary ability to retain stem cell-like
characteristics. Once specified, they migrate through the embryo and give rise
to a diverse array of derivatives, including peripheral neurons and glia,
pigment cells and craniofacial cartilage, which form most of the vertebrate
face. Thus, the neural crest is an attractive model system to study the gene
regulatory networks involved in cell fate determination, migration,
differentiation and in disease.
