Certain genetic disorders cause widespread disease in the body, but the principle reason for illness and death in early childhood is failure of the blood system.  We would like to study these genetic blood disorders by “turning back the clock” – using new technology in stem cell biology to take skin cells from patients with genetic blood disorders and return them to an embryonic-like state, wherein they regain the ability to form any type of cell in the body....

Programming, Reprogramming and Modeling of the Mammalian Cerebral Cortex

The execution of critical behaviors like movement, emotion, and intelligence relies on the orchestrated integration into functional circuits of an outstanding diversity of neuronal subtypes. Focusing on excitatory pyramidal neurons of the mammalian cerebral cortex, our work aims to understand the... Read more about Paola Arlotta, Ph.D.

The Armstrong laboratory is focused on the mechanisms of cancer development with a focus on leukemia. One major interest in the lab is the relationship between leukemia, normal hematopoietic stem cells and the various hematopoietic cells of origin of leukemia. The lab is also studying the role of histone modifications and chromosome ... Read more about Scott Armstrong, MD, PhD

With a series of rodent models, Dr. Bonner-Weir has provided compelling evidence that adult pancreatic beta-cell mass increases in response to a metabolic need and her lab has been examining the mechanisms of postnatal pancreatic growth. More broadly, her lab's focus is on how the pancreatic beta cell changes with age and response to challenges.... Read more about Susan Bonner-Weir, PhD
