Graduate Student Position in Development of Brain Folding

Posted by on October 3rd, 2019

The Lawton Lab is seeking a talented and motivated graduate student to study the cell and tissue mechanics regulating cerebellar morphogenesis and brain folding.   The beautiful and robust folds of the human cerebral cortex and the cerebellum increase the synaptic volume and compartmentalize the neural circuits. We have previously shown that the murine cerebellum[…]

Inflate your embryo

Posted by on September 17th, 2019

How would you create a hole between two sticky surfaces? Simply crack it! At a first glance, trying to pull apart the two surfaces seems to be a good idea, but in practice, you might need a lot of energy. However, it seems that the mouse embryo has found a smart and efficient way to do[…]

Embryonic hydraulics triumphs

Posted by on June 26th, 2019

In this article I share with you a more personal, chronological account of how our story unfolds (recently published in Nature), and highlight some key events and insights that help guide the direction of the study, which are not described in the publication. Readers are welcome to refer to the publication for more technical details.[…]

Scaling the Fish: An L.A. Story

Posted by on October 18th, 2018

Jeff Rasmussen tells the story behind his recent paper from the Sagasti Lab in Dev Cell. This project began as an extension of my earlier postdoc work in Alvaro Sagasti’s lab investigating removal of axon debris following skin injuries in the larval zebrafish [1] and led me into scientific territory that I never anticipated. It[…]
