The role of nerve-epithelial communication in organ development and regeneration

Speaker: Dr. Sarah Knox  –  Professor, Department of Cell and Tissue Biology, University of California | San Francisco, CA, United States.


The Knox lab’s research program focuses on discovering the mechanisms through which epithelial organs develop and regenerate after injury. Using the murine salivary gland and cornea as model systems, their studies have revealed peripheral nerves to be drivers of stem cell maintenance, tissue architecture, cell identity, and cell replacement, and do so through specific regulatory pathways.
