Our laboratory is interested in the molecular and cellular physiology of early embryonic development. The main line of research is focused on the role of embryonic calcium signaling in brain development and behavior, using zebrafish as a model system. Obtained results may provide new insights in the origin of human birth defects.
Robbert Creton received his B.S. in Biology (1990) and Ph.D. in Developmental Biology (1994) from the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands. He completed his post-doctoral training in developmental physiology at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, and was appointed as an investigator at Women & Infants Hospital of Rhode Island. At present, Robbert Creton is appointed as Associate Professor (Research) at Brown University, where he directs the Bioimaging Facility and studies the physiology of pattern formation during early zebrafish development.
