Welcome to the Mowry Lab at Brown University located in Providence, Rhode Island, USA. Our lab addresses one of the most intriguing mysteries of developmental biology which is the transformation of a seemingly simple oocyte to a complex organism.

Although the oocyte is a single cell, it establishes the first critical spatial patterning of maternal components which have important roles in the future development of a normal adult. Our main research interests center around how these maternal components, such as mRNA and protein, are spatially restricted within the egg or oocyte to influence pattern and polarity.
