Project summary

Dr Sanson studies morphogenesis in the Drosophila embryo and is interested in how the action of genes and mechanical forces work together to shape developing tissues. With this award, she will be concentrating her studies on a short window in early development when the embryo’s tissues undergo changes that are common to all bilateral organisms, including humans.
