Gene Networks in CNS Development
Unraveling the processes that generate the numerous neuronal subtypes and establish their appropriate connections to form a functional CNS is one of the main challenges in neuroscience today. Particularly, decoding the gene regulatory network responsible for neuronal subtype specification is a fundamental step toward understanding the CNS development and advancing methods to generate specific neurons in regenerative medicine.
Our goal is to develop a comprehensive map of the complex gene regulatory networks that direct cell-fate specification and assembly of neuro-circuits. Our major model systems include the spinal cord, which consists of distinct classes of neurons to assemble motor and sensory circuits.
To achieve our goals, we dissect multiple layers of gene regulatory steps that render neuronal cell-fate specification, taking the following steps; to define transcription complexes specifying each neuronal population, to identify their downstream effector genes conferring unique cell-identity, to understand epigenetic strategy orchestrating timely changes on gene transcription, to uncover the molecular mechanism by which the extracellular cues modulate neuronal gene expression, and to generate specific neuronal subtypes from stem cells by applying the developmental gene regulatory strategy that we define. Our study will eventually contribute to the design of a rational strategy to repair damaged neurons and to treat metabolic disorders in the human.
