The Miguel-Aliaga lab is  interested in the plasticity of adult organs: how and why organs that we commonly regard as fully developed change in size or function in response to environmental or internal challenges. They use the intestine and its neurons to explore these questions because they allow us to explore organ plasticity from an integrated perspective: how an organ senses and integrates signals from both its internal milieu and the environment (e.g. nutrients, microbiota), how its adult progenitors respond by either maintaining or resizing the organ, and how different cell types within the organ (epithelial, muscle, neural) communicate to achieve coordinated, organ-level remodelling.


Seminar Title:
The sex and geometry of inter-organ communication
