Welcome to the LOWE LAB

Our research focusses on the early evolution of deuterostomes and the origin of our own phylum, the chordates. We use descriptive and functional techniques to study the development of the hemichordate Saccoglossus kowalevskii and a range of echinoderm species to address fundamental hypotheses about the macroevolution of animal body plans.
