Research:
My research focuses on the splicing profiles characterizing and controlling the formation of cardiac cushions in early heart development. Specifically, I am investigating MBNL1, a splicing regulator, which is downregulated - and alternatively spliced itself - during endothelial-to-mesenchymal transition in cushion formation. I am interested in identifying the target genes of this protein, its upstream regulators, and the specific effects of these regulatory events in development.
