I am currently investigating the function and potential function of the Lgr5 pathway, a pathway critical in many somatic stem cells, which has also been found to be important in a variety of cancer stem cells. I will be mostly looking at this pathway via fetal liver cells and its importance in their proliferation in vitro and in vivo.
