How do primary cilia control the activity of stem cells in the developing cerebral cortex?

Posted by on November 7th, 2017

  SUPERVISORS: Dr Thomas Theil and Dr Pleasantine Mill PROJECT SUMMARY This project will dissect how cell signalling via the primary cilium coordinates the activity of neural stem cells during the development of the cerebral cortex. Proliferation and differentiation of cortical stem cells are tightly controlled processes. Changes in these parameters can have profound effects[…]
