Developmental & Stem Cell Biology
The Developmental and Stem Cell Biology Division, headed by Professor Richard Harvey
, aims to understand the molecular basis of inherited birth defects, the identification and characterisation of adult cardiac stem cells and the genetic pathways controlling cardiac regeneration.
The groups in this division use both mouse and zebrafish as model genetic systems as well as collaborating with clinicians to analyse inherited birth defects in humans. The division consists of three laboratories; The heart development and adult cardiac stem cell laboratory headed by Professor Richard Harvey, the Embryology laboratory headed by Professor Sally Dunwoodie
and the Cardiac Regeneration Laboratory headed by Dr Kazu Kikuchi
