Lab Interests:

Our laboratory is interested in understanding the molecular mechanisms involved in the development and regeneration of the pancreas. In addition, a major focus of our laboratory is understanding how normal pancreatic cell types initiate pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma. To examine the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying the development of pancreatic diseases, we are focused on understanding how specialized cell types of the pancreas are formed and how they contribute to diseases. To do this, we utilize mice to study pancreatic development and model aspects of pancreatic disease.
