It is our pleasure to announce that Ashley Bruce and Alan Moses have been promoted to Full Professor in the Department of Cell and Systems Biology as of July 1, 2019.

Professor Bruce uses a combination of cellular, molecular and embryological techniques to study how morphogenesis and embryonic tissue patterning are linked in the zebrafish. The zebrafish embryo is an ideal vertebrate system for analyzing morphogenesis and patterning due to its accessibility, its transparency, the ease of manipulation as well as well as the availability of mutant lines with defects in morphogenesis and patterning.

Professor Moses‘ research weaves together many threads from disciplines such as evolutionary genetics, systems biology, machine learning, sequence analysis and computer vision to address questions of molecular evolution, population genetics, and the dynamics and evolution of gene regulatory networks.
