Research InterestsRegulation of transcription factor activity and Chromatin regulation in the early embryo.
Research AreaOur group is interested in understanding transcriptional networks that are active very early during vertebrate development, particularly those involved in blood formation. We are using biochemical approaches to study mechanisms that control transcription regulator activity in the Xenopus embryo, up to tadpole stages, and gain and loss of function assays to analyse the activity of these early transcription regulators.
