My research uses the brain and embryo of the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster, as an in vivo model to study mitosis. I am interested in understanding how Embryonic Stem Cells acquire their Stem Cell identity for the very first time under normal conditions, and what the underlying mechanisms are that lead to their transformation into malignancies.
