Time 14:15 16:00
Location The AIAS Auditorium, Building 1632, Høegh-Guldbergs Gade 6B, 8000 Aarhus C


Knowledge about the regulatory mechanisms that specify plasticity (cell types) and potency (differentiation) are still limited and only now becoming more understood.  This project will investigate the essential roles of novel players in gene regulation during embryogenesis by using transcriptome analysis combined with mice as an experimental system.

Short CV

My research interests have always been connected to development, and especially to early embryonic development. During my PhD studies at Yale University, USA, I got into the track of gene modified animal models, and have worked on early embryonic development using mouse as an experimental tool (Post doc study at Cambridge University, UK), now with special focus on cell fate decision that shape the embryo (as an Associate professor, Aarhus University).

What is a Fellows' Seminar?

The AIAS Fellows' Seminar is a session of seminars held by the AIAS fellows or by other speakers proposed by the fellows. In each seminar, one fellow will present and discuss his/her current research and research project, closing off with a question and discussion session.

All seminars are held in English and open to the public. Registration to the seminar is not necessary. Read more about the AIAS Fellows' Seminar here.
