Developmental Genetics of Melanocytes

Dr. Larue's lab is mainly interested in the normal and pathological development of the melanocyte lineage. B-catenin has been implicated in the melanocytes' formation and their transformation in melonoma. His team also focuses research on b-catenin and other associated proteins (including cadherins, IGF1R and Akt).
