Research Focus

Our research is focused on developing and exploring spatially resolved gene expression tools and their applications. The basic concept is that we first place thin tissue sections onto barcoded microarrays, after which the tissue is stained and RNA is extracted while maintaining positional information within the tissue.

Many of our projects focus on building large scale interdisciplinary molecular atlases, including human development, where we are integrating spatial transcriptomics data with other technological platforms.
