The neural crest is a remarkable embryonic population of cells found only in vertebrates and has the potential to give rise to many different cell types contributing throughout the body. These derivatives range from the mesenchymal bone and cartilage comprising the facial skeleton, to neuronal derivatives of the peripheral sensory and autonomic nervous systems, to melanocytes throughout the body, and to smooth muscle of the great arteries of the heart. For these cells to correctly progress from an unspecifi ed, nonmigratory population to a wide array of dynamic, differentiated cell types

About the Author(s)

Brian Nelms, Vanderbilt University
Brian L. Nelms grew up in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. He received his bachelor's degrees in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and in Spanish from Pennsylvania State University. He continued his graduate education at Pennsylvania State University, receiving his PhD from the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in the laboratory of Dr. Wendy Hanna-Rose for his studies on transcriptional regulation of the development of the Caenorhabditis elegans egg laying apparatus. After completing his PhD studies, Dr. Nelms joined the laboratory of Dr. Patricia A. Labosky at Vanderbilt University, where he began studies in transcriptional control of cardiac neural crest development in mouse and pursuing his long-held interest in the fields of developmental biology and transcriptional regulation.

Patricia Labosky, Vanderbilt University
Patricia A. Labosky was born in Niagara Falls, NY. Trish grew up and was educated in Youngstown, NY. She received her BA in Biology from the University of Pennsylvania in 1985 and her PhD in 1992 in the Department of Biology at Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT, where she worked with Dr. Laura Grabel on the role of homeobox transcription factors in differentiation of embryonal carcinoma (EC) cells in vitro. Dr. Labosky joined the laboratory of Dr. Brigid L.M. Hogan at Vanderbilt University as a postdoctoral fellow. Her work focused on the derivation of stem cells from primordial germ cells and the role of winged helix genes in early embryogenesis. After accepting an appointment as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Cell and Developmental Biology at the University of Pennsylvania in 1997, Dr. Labosky continued her work on the role of winged helix genes in patterning the vertebrate embryo. She moved to Vanderbilt University as an Associate Professor in 2006 and has focused on molecular mechanisms required to maintain pluripotent embryonic stem (ES) cells and neural crest cell development in the mouse.
