Lab openings: Interested undergraduates and potential graduates and post-doctoral researchers are welcome to inquire about available positions in the lab. We use a combination of experimental and computational approaches to study pattern formation, growth control, and regeneration in order to inspire new ways to treat human diseases, such as cancer and to accelerate wound healing and regeneration.
