Developmental Neurobiology of Vision
Vaughn Cleghon, PhD , is interested in understanding the role of protein kinases in development and disease. His lab uses molecular biology, tissue culture, Drosophila genetics and bioinformatics to better understand fundamental mechanisms involved in the regulation of protein kinase activity. Visit the Cleghon lab site. Brian Gebelein, PhD , studies how the Hox genes specify distinct cell fates within the nervous system using the fruit fly as a model organism.

His long-term goal is to use a combination of genetic and biochemical approaches to understand how Hox factors interact with neuronal transcription factors to regulate downstream target genes that pattern the nervous system and ultimately control cellular function and behavior. Visit the Gebelein lab site. We are seeking to understand the molecular mechanisms underlying normal development of the CNS.
We are also interested in applying advancement of our knowledge on neural development for developing novel therapeutic strategies to cure neurological diseases. These two research fields are directly related to each other, and neural stem cells are the key and major driving force to link both research fields.
Visit the Nakafuku lab site. Neurology Research in this area focuses on the development of the peripheral and central nervous systems and how intrinsic and extrinsic factors influence behavior.
