Francis-West Lab

The Francis-West lab aims to understand mechanisms of skeletal development focusing on the Dchs1-Fat4 signalling pathway, which regulates cell differentiation and morphogenesis. We are also interested in understanding how mechanical signals regulate embryonic development through changes in cell fate and behaviours. The research has direct relevance to understanding human syndromes.
