Description of Interests

Our lab uses molecular genetic and genomic approaches to study the development of a group of embryonic cells called the neural crest. Neural crest cells are migratory, tissue-invasive stem cells that originate in the ectoderm of vertebrate embryos and play a central role in the development of the vertebrate body plan.

Description of Interests

Large molecular assemblies comprising multiple protein and/or nucleic acid subunits perform a variety of specialized tasks in the cell. Research in the Radhakrishnan laboratory is directed towards clarifying the structural and thermodynamic bases of protein-protein and protein-DNA interactions that regulate the formation and/or recruitment of these molecular assemblies.
