Wei Hsu Lab: Morphogenetic Signaling Network in Development and Disease

Research focus

We are interested in the mechanisms that support embryonic morphogenesis, tissue homeostasis, disease pathogenesis, and organ repair and regeneration. Focusing initially on Wnt as one of the most prevalent signaling pathways in developmental biology, we are establishing how Wnt signaling and its crosstalk with other pathways control pluripotency and differentiation in stem cells and homeostasis in mature cells. More recently, we have also focused on epigenetic, post-translational, ciliogenesis, mitochondrial regulation, and nuclear lamina causally linked to human diseases. Our goal is to use this basic knowledge to develop innovative strategies for disease prevention and therapy.
