Nerve-Stem Cell Interactions During Organ Development and Regeneration


The Knox lab is concerned with analyzing the cellular and molecular events underlying the formation of epithelial organs (organogenesis) and their regeneration after injury.

All epithelial organs receive a functional nerve supply from the parasympathetic branch of the autonomic nervous system. These nerves serve not only in promoting tissue function and homeostasis in the adult, but are also necessary for organ morphogenesis and regeneration after injury through the regulation of stem cells. Dr. Knox will describe her lab's recent findings on the mechanisms by which autonomic nerves regulate morphogenic and regenerative programs using the salivary gland as their model system.
