Her research has focused on the investigation of genes involved in specifying neurectoderm and neuronal derivatives in the mouse embryo.
Furthermore, the extra Wnt caused the Wnt-responsive cells to differentiate primarily into mesendodermal precursors (which can become either mesoderm or endoderm and is associated with the posterior of the embryo) and inhibited the formation of neurectoderm (ectoderm destined to become cells of the nervous system that are mostly associated with the embryo's anterior).
