Research Seminar: “Leveraging the Drosophila System to Understand Mechanisms of Heart and Skeletal Muscle Development and Disease”
Richard Cripps, D. Phil
Fred Henry Professor of Life Sciences
San Diego State University
Our research uses the Drosophila system to understand mechanisms of heart muscle development and disease in vertebrates. We use a multidisciplinary approach involving genetics, CRISPR, cell biology, and molecular biology to define the mechanistic basis of muscle transcription factor activity, and the roles of these regulatory factors in muscle development.
