Naden Krogan

Assistant Professor
Department of Biology

  • Dr. Krogan is a developmental biologist interested in how gene regulation guides the formation of complex tissues and organs in eukaryotes. The proper arrangement of these structures usually requires precise spatial control of fate-specifying genes, involving both transcriptional activation and repression. Research in his laboratory concentrates on the transcriptional regulation of floral organ formation and stem cell function in the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana. His work relies on a variety of techniques, including molecular biology, genetic and genomic approaches. His research aims to contribute to our understanding of how complex patterns form in eukaryotes, and can lead to strategies for improvement of agronomically important crops.
