THE DRESSLER LABORATORY
Research in this laboratory at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, is focused on the molecular genetics of embryonic development.
The development of a complex tissue requires the precise orchestration of external cell signaling networks and intrinsic transcription factors. The lab utilizes the developing kidney as a model system to study cell lineage specification, differentiation, and patterning. Strikingly, many of the pathways required for development are associated with renal disease.
