La Manno Lab – Laboratory of Neurodevelopmental Systems Biology

Our research focuses on understanding how the cell types in the nervous system are made. We are particularly interested in describing the sequence of states that embryonic stem cells go through during their differentiation towards mature neurons in the central nervous system and the retina.
