Name: William A Harris
Position: Emeritus Professor
Research Description:
Our group studies the development of the nervous system​. We are interested in the following questions. How does the nervous system ​originate in the embryo? How does it grow to the right size and shape? How do precursor cell​s​ ​differentiate into a particular cell ​types​? To answer these questions, ​we focus on the ​neural​ retina in the ​zebrafish ​eye​, which ​is the ideal model ​system to study the​ mechanisms that underlie these processes.
