Morrisey Lab

Welcome to the Morrisey Lab

Our lab focuses on the developmental pathways and factors that are critical for building the cardiopulmonary system. Using a combination of mouse genetics, biochemistry, and genomic analysis, we seek to better understand how the lung and heart develop, how developmental pathways are disrupted in human cardiopulmonary disease, and whether such pathways and factors can be harnessed to promote pulmonary and cardiac regeneration in the adult.
