Work with thought leaders and academic experts in developmental biology

Companies can greatly benefit from working with experts in the field of Developmental Biology. These researchers have a deep understanding of the processes and mechanisms involved in the development of organisms. Here are some ways companies can collaborate with them: 1. Drug Development: Developmental biologists can contribute to the discovery and development of new drugs by studying the effects of compounds on embryonic development and identifying potential therapeutic targets. 2. Biotechnology: Developmental biologists can provide insights into the growth and differentiation of cells, which is crucial for the development of biotechnological products such as tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. 3. Genetic Engineering: By understanding the genetic basis of development, developmental biologists can contribute to genetic engineering projects aimed at improving crop yields, developing disease-resistant plants, and creating genetically modified organisms. 4. Environmental Impact Assessment: Developmental biologists can assess the impact of environmental factors on the development of organisms, helping companies understand and mitigate potential risks. 5. Education and Outreach: Developmental biologists can collaborate with companies to develop educational materials and outreach programs to promote scientific literacy and engage the public in understanding the importance of developmental biology.

About
My core interests lie in understanding how children and adolescents perceive and interpret social signals and how emerging functional specificity of the developing brain supports this process. My approach primarily involves using the face processing system as a model domain. Faces are dynamic stimuli from which we extract many different kinds of information (e.g., gender, age, emotional state, mate potential, social status, trustworthiness, intentions, “person knowledge”). All of these processes must be executed accurately and rapidly for many faces over the course of a single day, making face processing among the most taxing perceptual challenges confronted by people in their day-to-day life. Given that faces are also the pre-eminent social signal, studying developmental changes in the behavioral and brain basis of face processing in typically developing individuals and in those affected by social-emotional disorders may index a core set of developmental changes within the broader social information processing system. I employ converging methodologies, including functional (fMRI) and structural magnetic resonance, and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) along with detailed behavioral paradigms in both typically developing populations and those with developmental disorders to examine development from early childhood to adulthood.

Example developmental biology projects

How can companies collaborate more effectively with researchers, experts, and thought leaders to make progress on developmental biology?

Development of a Novel Drug for Congenital Disorders

A pharmaceutical company can collaborate with a developmental biologist to develop a novel drug for congenital disorders. The researcher can provide insights into the molecular mechanisms underlying these disorders and identify potential therapeutic targets.

Tissue Engineering for Organ Regeneration

A biotech company can work with a developmental biologist to develop tissue engineering techniques for organ regeneration. The researcher's expertise in cell growth and differentiation can help in creating functional and viable organs for transplantation.

Genetic Modification of Crops for Improved Yield

An agricultural company can collaborate with a developmental biologist to genetically modify crops for improved yield. The researcher can identify genes involved in plant growth and development and introduce genetic modifications to enhance productivity.

Assessment of Developmental Effects of Environmental Toxins

An environmental consulting firm can partner with a developmental biologist to assess the developmental effects of environmental toxins. The researcher can conduct experiments to determine the impact of pollutants on embryonic development and provide recommendations for mitigation.

Development of Science Education Materials

An educational company can collaborate with a developmental biologist to develop science education materials. The researcher can contribute their expertise to create engaging and informative content that promotes understanding of developmental biology concepts.
