Laura Kerosuo: Neural Crest Development & Disease Unit

Neural crest in chick embryo, human neural crest spheroid, Spatial Genomic Analysis (SGA)

Our Goal

We aim to understand how the neural crest maintains its exceptionally high stem cell potential and what ultimately triggers its fate commitment. Characterization of the events at the molecular level by using both in vivo and in vitro animal and patient derived model systems will also elucidate defects in neural crest-derived cancers and other neurocristopathies that comprise a quarter of congenital birth defects.
