RESEARCH SUMMARY
I’m interested in Nematostella germline development and the adult gonad niche. My project is addressing: How are Nematostella primordial germ cells specified during development? How do embryonic primordial germ cells develop into adult germline stem cells? What cell types compose the adult gonad niche?
