This research laboratory at Virginia Commonwealth University is dedicated to training students at all levels in Cell and Developmental Biology Research. The studies conducted here seek to understand the role of calcium signals during development. In particular, the CaMK-II gene family and its products are studied in embryonic cells in culture as well as in whole zebrafish embryos.
