Supanat PhuangphongPost Doctoral Researcher
PhD in Biology. University of Tsukuba, Ibaraki, Japan.
MS in Biology. University of Tsukuba, Ibaraki, Japan.
BS in Biology. Mahidol University, Bangkok, Thailand.Research Interests:
My research interests lie in the area of evolutionary developmental biology and developmental genetics. In the Extavour lab, I will work collaboratively with colleagues from the Hejnol, Heisenberg, and Tomancak labs to examine the evolutionary history of intermediate filament proteins and their functions in embryonic developmentOther Publications:
