Career history

Research interests

Using the zebrafish as a genetic tool to study development and disease. We are interested in understanding the role of the patched genes in Hedgehog signaling. In addition, we have created a knockout for the von Hippel Lindau disease (VHL) gene and are interested in modeling VHL deficient cancers in zebrafish.
