Hippo signalling in heart development and regeneration
My research is aimed at understanding how Wnt, Bmp, Hippo and other signalling pathways are related to development and tissue regeneration. The ultimate goal of our studies is to obtain an in depth understanding of these pathways in order to develop ways to treat congenital diseases and regenerate heart muscle and other adult tissues. Toward that end, we have recently discovered that Hippo signalling is a critical repressor of adult heart regeneration.
