About this Class

Dr. Blackshaw's work examines the molecular basis of neuronal and glial cell fate specification and survival, focusing on characterizing the network of genes that control specification of different cell types within the retina and hypothalamus, two structures that arise from the embryonic forebrain.  The ultimate goal is to use insights gained from learning how individual cell types are specified to understand how these cells contribute to the regulation of behavior, and how they can be replaced in neurodegenerative disease.
