• Farewell to Davys Lopez, who is off to graduate school in developmental biology at Columbia University, and to Aisha Dorta, who is moving to South Korea to teach! We're proud of you and we'll miss you!
Welcome to the Extavour lab. We are a collection of developmental biologists, molecular biologists, geneticists, cell biologists, zoologists, and evolutionary biologists. Our shared interest is in the evolution of the genetic mechanisms employed during early animal embryogenesis to specify cell fate, development and differentiation. We focus primarily on the evolution and development of reproductive systems, including both the germ line and the somatic components of the gonad.
