Welcome to the Prince Lab!

Welcome to the Prince lab, where we take a cellular, molecular, and comparative approach to the study of developmental processes. Our research program uses rapidly developing, transparent—and very beautiful—embryos of the zebrafish, Danio rerio.  Zebrafish embryos are ideal for high resolution live imaging approaches, and these techniques are helping us to understand dynamic cellular processes that build complex structures during embryonic development—especially of the nervous system and cranial structures. Our imaging experiments are complemented by the use of increasingly powerful molecular genetic and transgenic tools, such as CRISPR/Cas technology, which allow us to interrogate the molecular basis of developmental processes. Please take a look around our pages to learn more about our ongoing studies.
