Danelle Devenport

Princeton University, USA

Danelle Devenport is an Associate Professor in the Department of Molecular Biology at Princeton University. Her research focuses on how cells assemble into specialized arrangements during organ development and how these patterns are preserved during tissue growth and regeneration. 

Her lab established the mouse epidermis as a model system to investigate fundamental mechanisms of the planar cell polarity (PCP) pathway in an expansive and regenerative organ. This work has uncovered how epithelia coordinate their polarity across tissues, how epidermal stem cells erase and restore cell polarity when they divide and led to the discovery of a new mechanism for collective cell motion during hair follicle morphogenesis. in new tab/window
