Biography

Dr. Segal's laboratory investigates the process of neural development – how the nervous system develops from neural stem cells to neurons that function within a neural circuit. We focus on the extracellular cues, such as growth factors and morphogens that direct this complex process. A major focus of the lab is to use this developmental view to identify and target pathways that cause the abnormal proliferation, migration and survival of brain tumors.
