I am interested in applying cutting-edge tools, such as single-cell live-imaging, single cell transcriptomics, and genetic editing to dissect the intricate balance that governs the first cell lineage decisions in the blastocyst. Such decisions control pluripotency and stem cells potential, and are under the control of signaling pathways that are known to be involved in many human diseases; particularly late-stages malignancies. Thus, studying these processes have far reaching implications in developmental biology, regenerative medicine, and tumorigenesis.
