Pioneers in Biomedical Research Seminar: Cis-regulatory Control of Neural Crest Development
About this Seminar
Multicellular organisms are formed by a large number of cell types, which serve as the components of tissues and organs. The Simoes-Costa Lab studies how cellular diversity arises during vertebrate embryonic development. The lab employs functional genomics to decode the molecular programs that drive changes in cell identity. Dr. Simoes-Costa's research group is particularly interested on how genetic networks operate in space to generate complex arrangement of cells.
This is a free event hosted by the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute and co-sponsored by the institute's Center for Neurobiology Research. The Pioneers in Biomedical Research Seminar Series, which runs annually from September to May, has featured leading biomedical researchers from throughout the country since the program began in 2012. The lectures are also open to all members of the Virginia Tech community including graduate students, undergraduates, faculty, and staff, as well as the public.
