Emergence and patterning of mesoderm cell lineages: from cardiac progenitors to paraxial mesoderm

This seminar will be held on Microsoft Teams. Please join with your video off and mikes muted. Email hod-pa@dpag.ox.ac.uk for more details.

The Munsterberg group studies molecular and cellular mechanisms of cell fate specification, focussing on mesodermal lineages. We have investigated the emergence of cardiac progenitor cells from the primitive streak during gastrulation, and characterized the signalling pathways controlling their migration trajectories. In paraxial mesoderm, recent work has examined the dynamics of chromatin accessibility in developing somites along the body axis.
