Welcome to the Prince Lab
Welcome to the Prince lab, where we use cellular, molecular, genetic, genomic and comparative approaches to study developmental processes. Our research program primarily makes use of the zebrafish, Danio rerio, which provides rapidly developing, transparent embryos. These embryos are ideal for high resolution live imaging approaches, which are helping us to understand the dynamic cellular processes that build complex structures during embryonic development. Our imaging experiments are complemented by powerful molecular genetic and transgenic tools, such as CRISPR/Cas technology, which allow us to interrogate the molecular basis of developmental processes. In addition to zebrafish, Prince lab members use little skate and other species in comparative studies. Please take a look around our pages to learn more about our ongoing studies on the neural crest, the anterior lateral line, and the pronephros.
NEWS AND EVENTS
Michael wins a prize for his lightning talk "Converging identities: shared competence of mesoderm and neural crest in the little skate" at the Fall 2023 Molecular BioSciences Retreat.
Fall comes to campus (image) as we welcome new lab members Dr. Sarah Paramore (Chicago Fellow) and Michael Wen (DRSB graduate student). Go to People to learn more about them!
Current and previous Prince lab members get together at the Society for Developmental Biology 82nd Annual Meeting in Chicago, IL!
