Lo uses the zebrafish tailbud to model vertebrate development and study stem cell fate decisions. She focuses on a group of bipotential stem cells known as the neuromesodermal progenitors and studies how they become part of either the nervous system or muscle. Because vertebrate development is conserved throughout evolution, understanding stem cell differentiation in zebrafish can provide insight into human development and eventually lead to therapies for birth defects.
