Michelle Monje

The Monje Lab studies the molecular and cellular mechanisms of postnatal neurodevelopment in health and disease. This includes postnatal neurogenesis and gliogenesis, cellular contributions to the neurogenic and gliogenic signaling microenvironment, molecular determinants of neural precursor cell fate, developmental origins of pediatric brain tumors, and the role of neural precursor cells in oncogenesis and repair mechanisms.
