Katherine W. Rogers, Ph.D.Lead Investigator, Unit on Developmental Signaling
Katherine obtained a B.S. in Molecular Biology from the University of Wyoming, where she used C. elegans to study developmental genetics in Dr. David S. Fay’s lab. She then joined Alexander F. Schier’s lab at Harvard University for her Ph.D. work focusing on the role of the Nodal/Lefty activator/inhibitor system in germ layer patterning. For her postdoctoral research she joined Patrick Müller’s group at the Friedrich Miescher Laboratory of the Max Planck Society, where she examined signaling molecule movement and signaling interpretation in zebrafish embryos.
