Deciphering the brain cell by cell

The cellular diversity of the human brain is immense, which is generated through evolutionarily conserved developmental mechanisms. The system is robust enough to create functional masterpiece; yet is susceptible to failure that may lead to cognitive dysfunction.

The research in my lab focuses on understanding the role of cellular and molecular heterogeneity with a focus on neural stem cell niche, neuronal differentiation and cognitive disorders. We use state-of-the art single cell sequencing techniques, mouse genetics and ES/iPS derived organoid models to run multidisciplinary, collaborative projects.
