Dr. Robert Heuckeroth will be visiting us on June 8th, 2018. He is a Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Heuckeroth’s group is focused on the molecular and cellular mechanisms that control enteric nervous system development. This work involves a combination of molecular biology, genetics, live cell imaging, primary cell culture, epidemiology, physiology, biochemistry, stem cell biology and regenerative medicine. Since the enteric nervous system is derived from actively migrating, proliferating and differentiating neural crest cells, we have broad interests in the complex processes that govern normal and abnormal development with the long term goal of finding new ways to prevent birth defects and to repair damaged organs.

Join us on June 8, 2018. Time and Location TBA.
