Elliot L. Chaikof, MD, PhD, has promoted alliances of clinicians, engineers, chemists, and biologists and in the process developed biologically-inspired materials, devices, and pharmacotherapeutics based upon the principles of molecular engineering and nanofabrication technologies. These endeavors have enabled advances in cell-based therapies, artificial organs, and engineered living tissues, which define the evolving field of Regenerative Medicine....

Our research is focused on understanding the molecular underpinnings of metabolic diseases such as type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and coronary artery disease (CAD).... Read more about Chad Cowan, Ph.D.
Craft Lab research Our research focuses on both developmental biology and translational medicine, and involves the use of pluripotent stem cells to understand how musculoskeletal lineages, primarily articular chondrocytes and cartilage tissues, are specified during embryonic development and how mature cells and...

George Q. Daley, M.D., Ph.D, seeks to translate insights in stem cell biology into improved therapies for genetic and malignant diseases. Important research contributions from his laboratory include the creation of customized stem cells to treat genetic immune deficiency in a mouse model (together with Rudolf Jaenisch), the differentiation of germ cells from embryonic stem cells (cited as a “Top Ten Breakthrough” by Science magazine in 2003), and the generation of disease-specific pluripotent stem cells by direct reprogramming of human fibroblasts (cited in the “Breakthrough of the Year” issue of Science magazine in 2008)....

We study kidney organogenesis using the zebrafish to explore conserved molecular mechanisms underlying kidney cell specification, differentiation, and organ patterning. We also study organ pathologies that results from mutations in genes required for cilia biogenesis and function. These include kidney cystic disease, retinal degeneration and left-right asymmetry defects.... Read more about Iain A. Drummond, Ph.D.
The Dymecki lab studies how functional modularity arises within the brain serotonergic neuronal system and dynamically controls diverse processes ranging from respiration and thermal balance to emotional mood state to coping behaviors.... Read more about Susan Dymecki, MD, PhD

The Ebert laboratory focuses on the molecular basis and treatment of hematologic malignancies, with a particular focus on myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS). In large-scale genetic analyses of patient samples, the lab has identified somatic mutations that predict prognosis and response to therapies in MDS patients. The also focuses on a pre-...
