Stephanie Woo

Professional Title: 
Assistant Professor
(209) 228-4030
Science and Engineering 1 Building, Room 248
Lab Location: 
Science and Engineering 1 Building, Room 253
Ph.D., 2007, University of Wisconsin, Madison
Research Interests: 

The Woo Lab is interested in how dynamic cellular processes such as cell migration and cell adhesion contribute to the formation of the gastrointestinal epithelium, using the zebrafish embryo as our model system. We are also interested in developing new tools to study in vivo cell biology.
