Welcome to the Knox Lab

Understanding Nerve-stem cell Communication

In the Knox lab we study how organs form and regenerate after injury. We are particularly interested in glandular organs, including the salivary and lacrimal (tear producing) glands and the exocrine pancreas. A key aspect to our work is understanding the role of the nervous system in regulating stem cell behavior.


We have a very diverse group with people from China, Australia, Ireland, England, France, USA and Israel!
