About: Ann

I am a graduate student in Deborah Gumucio’s lab at the University of Michigan. I study the morphogenetic changes responsible for remodeling the embryonic mouse intestinal epithelium to form a functional absorptive epithelial layer. More generally, my interests include answering embryological and developmental questions of cell polarity, shape, and movement using animal models, live imaging, genetic manipulation, and developmental techniques.
