The Blackshaw lab at Johns Hopkins University studies the molecular basis of cell fate specification in vertebrate retina and hypothalamus. The retina develops from the hypothalamus and consists of seven major cell types; defects in proper differentiation of these cells can result in blindness. The hypothalamus is a central physiological regulatory center composed of many cell types that are critical for regulating behaviors including the sleep-wake cycle and appetite.
