Victoria E. Prince

My research program at the University of Chicago focuses on vertebrate axial regionalization during development, primarily using the zebrafish as a model. My group takes a variety of molecular, cellular, genetic and comparative approaches to these studies, and we have made important contributions to a variety of research areas, including the understanding of Hox gene regulation of hindbrain patterning, evolution of duplicated genes and genomes in the vertebrates, and patterning of endoderm-derived tissues. Active areas of research in my lab include ongoing studies of neural crest and anterior lateral line development.
