Emergence of functional polarity in a tubular epithelium Epithelial tubes often have a functional polarity written along their proximo-distal (P-D) axis, with different segments of specialised cell-types carrying out distinct physiological activities. With a handful of notable exceptions, we know very little about how P-D axes and segment-specific differentiation are regulated during organogenesis. The major[…]

A postdoctoral position is available to study the developmental mechanisms that pattern differentiation during organ development. Epithelial tubes often have a functional polarity written along their P-D axis, with specialised segments carrying out distinct physiological activities. With a handful of notable exceptions, we know little about how P-D axes and segment-specific differentiation are regulated during[…]
