Gene regulatory networks during early embryonic development and in cancer: Prof. Grant N Wheeler is a principle contributing researcher from University of East Anglia, School of Biological Sciences. The Wheeler lab is a dynamic group using the amphibian Xenopus as a model organism to study aspects of cell and developmental biology in a whole animal situation. The group uses modern methods of embryology and molecular biology in the lab. Current research looks at the molecular events that govern the origin of the Neural Crest and its derivatives in the early embryo.

Prof. Wheeler’s lab will be hosting the young researchers ESR5 and ESR6.
