  • Ret in fly guts... and mouse organoids


    Our first fly + mouse paper is out in EMBO J. Unexpected roles for the Ret neurotrophic receptor outside neurons, in the intestinal epithelium. Great team effort in the lab and nice collaboration with Kim Jensen's lab. Thanks to Judith Eisen for her F1000Prime recommendation.
