Research interests

Deciphering the regulatory networks involved in eye specification is a challenging task and is far from being fully delineated. Our studies have revealed a previously unknown involvement of Gsx ParaHox gene in photoreceptor cells specification in the simplified chordate model system, the ascidian Ciona intestinalis. My PhD project is focused on the characterization of the gene regulatory network that is deployed downstream of Gsx signaling during photoreceptor cells specification. To this end, I will employ a targeted interference of Gsx function, by transgenesis experiments, together with a differential transcriptomic approach, in order to identify new genes involved in early stages of this process.
