Research Abstract
Cells are the essential building blocks of life. They participate in the development and function of organs at all spatial scales – from molecular signaling to tissue patterning. The mission of Shi’s lab is to elucidate how cells drive developmental mechanisms across all scales using novel imaging and omics methods.
