About Caitlin McQueen

Caitlin completed her undergraduate at the University of York in 2014. She remained at York whilst completing her thesis entitled “Investigating the coordinated transcriptional networks regulating Xenopus myogenesis” receiving her doctorate in 2018. Caitlin then moved to the University of Sheffield to study limb development. Here she carried out research for a number of projects, including investigating the role of Shh signalling in regulating the specification of evolutionarily conserved flight feathers during development, detailed 3D mapping of limb neuromuscular networks and more recently, developed an ex vivo culture system to investigate the ability of limb cells to maintain developmental timing in the absence of cues from the wider embryo.
