Paul A. Krieg, PhD

Professor, Emeritus
Research Interests: 

Our primary focus is on development of the cardiovascular system. We are investigating the role of growth factor signaling pathways and transcription factor networks in regulating formation of the heart and the first embryonic blood vessels.
