James Briscoe, Ph.D.
Senior Group Leader
The Francis Crick Institute
Dr. James Briscoe's lab studies how the central nervous system (CNS) is formed in embryos. They are currently focused on the spinal cord, which is the part of the CNS that contains the nerves that allow us to sense our environment and respond to it by moving muscles. Their goal is to identify the genes involved in spinal cord development and determine how they work to produce and organize the different types of nerve cells found in this part of the CNS.
