Neural crest cells are the best cells

Abstract: Who am I if I am not a developmental biologist? I am a first-generation college graduate and a scientist who is passionate about my research field. The work in my lab focuses on understanding the molecular and cellular mechanisms that drive some of the earliest processes in vertebrate embryonic development. How do cells choose their fate? How do they migrate? How do tissues form? How are faces made? In this CAMPOS colloquium talk, I will speak about my path in science and how I discovered the field of developmental biology. I will also share some exciting results, gathered by the amazing scientists in my lab, about how neural crest cells form and differentiate during embryogenesis and what happens if those processes are perturbed.
