We are investigating the molecular mechanisms of development and regeneration using the zebrafish as an experimental system. The zebrafish embryo is particularly suited for live animal imaging and high throughput analysis. We are currently automating microscope systems, embryo handling and other support systems to achieve high throughput of chemical testing as well as systematic genetic analyses of genes and regulatory elements. In addition to its capability as high throughput system the zebrafish offers also systems biology approaches in a living intact organism with cellular and subcellular resolution.

Major areas of interests are: fluorescent labeling of proteins, subcellular compartments and investigation of the dynamics of signalling processes during development of the body plan and organ formation.
