(Formerly Peter Baillie-Johnson)
I studied for my PhD in the Martinez Arias lab and have worked with Professor Jennifer Nichols at the Wellcome-MRC Cambridge Stem Cell Institute on modelling gastrulation in vitro with embryonic stem cells during my first post-doctoral position.
In returning to the Martinez Arias lab, I am exploring the early stages of gastruloid development in which symmetry is broken and the germ layers are specified. I want to better understand the factors regulating these processes in gastruloids and how we can use this knowledge to improve the representation of tissues that are formed.
In my spare time, I enjoy cooking for friends and family, running, cycling and being outdoors.
