Department of Developmental Biology

St. Louis, Missouri - United States

Washington University, School of Medicine, Department of Developmental Biology. The Developmental Biology Department encompasses a group of faculty with primary interests and expertise in developmental biology, stem cell biology, physiology and aging. At present, the principal research activities of this department are focused on the profoundly complex challenge of attaining a mechanistic understanding of organogenesis, encompassing the earliest developmental processes in the embryo, organism and cellular physiology, and tissue homeostasis and repair.

The ultimate goal is to understand development and physiology in enough detail to recapitulate organogenesis in vitro and to generate replacement tissues that function in vivo. This long-term goal has immense potential benefit for human health. A comprehensive understanding and integration of developmental biology, stem cell biology, physiology and aging will facilitate translational approaches to preventing and treating a variety of genetic, developmental, metabolic and neurological diseases, and cancer.
