Our research focuses on addressing how the dendrites and axons of a neuron develop differently, with the goal to define how polarized neurons are assembled into functional neural circuits and how defects in this process lead to human diseases. We employ a multi-disciplinary approach, including genetics, molecular biology, biochemistry, and advanced multi-dimensional imaging, to study these problems in both Drosophila and mammals.
