Beverley’s interests are in the fields Embryology and Developmental Biology. Her studies are mainly on factors affecting development, such as those of the endocrine cells of the pancreas, submandibular gland, and tooth. Embryonic stem cells are being utilised as part of this research. The area of tooth development and evolution has recently become a focus with financial support from the NRF. In addition she continues to do some research into factors affecting implantation of the embryo, as well keeping her interest in neural crest cells current.
