Chris Konow researches the impact of growth on Turing patterns in the Epstein Lab. Turing patterns are named after the British mathematician Alan Turing, who proposed a mechanism for how differentiation can occur within a homogeneous system. The Epstein and Fraden labs at Brandeis have provided experimental support for Turing's predictions and are currently performing research to improve our understanding of the Turing mechanism.
