JHB 208 Chakrabarti room, JHBB, Headington Campus, Gipsy Lane site
research is focused on topics relating to vertebrate craniofacial (head)
development, craniofacial genetic conditions in humans and craniofacial
developmental evolution. His group are interested in the precise mechanisms of
cranial skeletal cell differentiation and skull/face morphogenesis in amniotes.
His work combines the study of ‘model’ laboratory systems such as mouse models
with ‘non-model’ species used for evolutionary developmental studies, such as
Darwin's Finches and other birds, as well as reptiles.
