The Irvine lab is located within the Waksman Institute at Rutgers University. Dr. Kenneth Irvine is a Professor II of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry, and an Invesigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.

We are engaged in projects whose long-term goal is to define relationships between patterning and growth in developing and regenerating organs. Much of our research takes advantage of the powerful genetic, molecular, and cellular techniques available in Drosophila melanogaster, which facilitate both gene discovery and the analysis of gene function.
