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.
NEWS AND EVENTS
As of Monday, Vicky is now the President-elect of the Society for Developmental Biology. The news was announced at the first day of this year's SDB Annual Meeting. Get excited for SDB 2022, which Vicky will be organizing here!
Congratulations to Ruby Schnirman, long-time lab undergrad (and most recently the part-time technician), who graduated earlier this month with a degree in Biological Sciences with Research Honors. While in the lab, she studied neural crest cell development and...
A preprint of work done by Dr. Claudia Linker's lab at King's College London in collaboration with former Prince lab graduate student, Dr. Manny Rocha, is now available on bioRxiv! In the paper, "Notch controls the cell cycle to define leader versus follower...
