Muroyama Lab

Welcome! We are a group of cell and developmental biologists who are passionate about understanding how plants create tissues.


Our Research


The amazing diversity in plant form that we see around us arises from the collective actions of individual cells. How do cells know their positions within a tissue and use that information to create new organs? How conserved are these pathways across plant tissues and species? We interrogate these mechanisms using a range of techniques including live-imaging, genetics, and proteomics.
