The goals of the laboratory are to examine the growth, assembly and connectivity of the nervous system during development and in disease processes such as cancer and neurodevelopmental disorders. We generate basic knowledge about normal and abnormal nervous system formation and growth processes and use this information in preclinical models to determine new  targets to treat diseases such as cancer.
