My post-doctoral research has focused on the roles of fibroblast growth factor receptors during kidney development. I have been using a conditional knockout approach to target the various renal lineages. My post-doctoral experience focused on kidney development: including receptor tyrosine kinases and how their downstream adaptors play key roles in ureteric branching morphogenesis and kidney formation. My independent research focuses on vascular formation and endothelial precursors during organogenesis and disease, with a particular focus on the kidney.
