Currently our work is concentrated on different aspects of stem cell biology. We are generally interested in understanding the principles of animal design. To be more detailed, we try to focus on cellular aspects of development and evolution, elaboration of novelties in cellular lineages, issues of biological individuality and competition of cells inside of the multicellular organisms.
I primarily works on embryonic and adult peripheral glial heterogeneity with the help of single cell transcriptomics approach. My projects are focused around multipotency of Schwann cell precursors and their differentiation trajectories.
