Talk Title: Growth and patterning of the developing spinal cord

Anna Kicheva is a group leader at the Institute of Science and Technology Austria (ISTA) since November 2015. Her lab works at the interface between developmental and stem cell biology, biophysics and quantitative biology. The main research interest of the lab is the control of tissue growth and pattern formation in the developing vertebrate neural tube. Anna started her work on neural tube development during her postdoc at the NIMR (currently The Francis Crick Institute) in London with James Briscoe. She did her PhD with Marcos Gonzalez-Gaitan at the MPI-CBG in Dresden and the University of Geneva, studying morphogen gradient formation in the Drosophila wing disc.
