Atit Lab Research
Craniofacial development and Skin disease
Atit Lab studies craniofacial skin and bone development in the mouse embryo. We are specifically interested in the genetic program and the development of the embryonic dermis and cranial bones. Projects in the lab focus on various early development and postnatal aspects relating to dermal or cranial bone cell fate, origin, and differentiation. We are also developing new genetic mouse models for skin fibrosis to identify biomarkers.
