Research

Research in the Varelas lab is focused on gaining insight into molecular mechanisms that direct cell fate decisions during animal development, homeostasis, and disease. The lab is particularly interested in understanding the functions of the transcriptional regulators YAP and TAZ (YAP/TAZ), which are key effectors of Hippo pathway signaling, and uses molecular and genetic approaches to study these factors across various aspects of biology.
