Our Developmental Integrative Biology (DIB) cluster at UNT comprises of a vibrant consortium of ten faculty and more than three dozen graduate students, post doctoral fellows and visiting investigators. Focusing on Developmental Integrative Biology, we employ a highly collaborative approach to exploring:
Our investigators use a rich variety of animal models popular in developmental studies, including C. elegans, fruit flies, zebrafish, amphibians, birds, and mammals. Through our use of diverse animal models, we collectively aim to identify major unifying principles of Developmental Integrative Biology. Members in our group are currently funded by NIH, NSF, and American Heart Association.
UNT has designated our DIB cluster as an area of research excellence, and will be investing heavily in new DIB faculty, support staff, training opportunities, and infrastructure to move us to national prominence. In 2010 we moved into state-of-the-art research facilities in the new Life Sciences Complex providing unmatched opportunities for contemporary studies in Developmental Integrative Biology.
We welcome inquiries regarding potential collaborations, training opportunities, and employment.
