Evisabel Craig, PhD

My research focused on the study of the molecular mechanisms that govern the activation of the transmembrane protein Has2 and its product hyaluronan to induce changes in cellular behavior that are relevant for embryogenesis. I am currently working as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Wisconsin studying signaling mechanisms of melanocyte development.
