Regulation of epithelial homeostasis using Drosophila midgut as a model system


This study aims towards elucidating mechanisms that regulate stem cell identity and maintenance during homeostasis. Specifically, the factors that result in variation in the physiology, number and turnover rates of resident adult stem cells in different regions of Drosophila midgut. These results will provide insights in understanding why some tissues are prone of tumor formation than others.
