Daniel Bauer, PhD . Boston Children’s Hospital Blood cell ontogeny
The Bauer lab studies the determinants of blood cell ontogeny and disease using several techniques to perturb and observe blood cells.
Andrew Brack, PhD UCSF Muscle stem cell regulation
The Brack lab studies cell communication between muscle stem cells and their environment to promote muscle regeneration.
Angela Cacace, PhD Arvinas, Inc. Novel cancer therapeutics
Arvinas is developing a new class of drugs that engage the body’s own natural protein disposal system to treat cancers and other difficult-to-treat diseases.
Eaves was unsatisfied with the tools available to him for his cancer research and his team started creating their own blood stem cell culture media. Within twelve years, the demand for his products was so great, Eaves launched STEMCELL Technologies. Since then, it has become the largest biotech company in Canada.
Connie Eaves, PhD Terry Fox Laboratory Normal and cancer stem cells
The Eaves laboratory focuses on the development, validation and use of quantitative assays that are specific for biologically distinct subsets of these stem cells using syngeneic (mouse-mouse) and xenogeneic (human-mouse) hosts to the study of human breast cancer and leukemic breast cancer.
Anna-Katerina Hadjantonakis, PhD Sloan Kettering Pluripotency and development
The Hadjantonakis laboratory studies pluripotency, cell lineage commitment, tissue patterning, and morphogenesis.
Justin Ichida, PhD University of Southern California Neurodegenerative Diseases
The Ichida lab focuses on understanding how genetic and environmental factors contribute to human neurodegenerative disease.
Barbara Mellone, PhD University of Connecticut Regulation of Cell Division
The Mellone lab investigates the regulation of cell division and the contribution of centromeres and kinetochores to chromosome division.
Alison O’Neil, PhD Wesleyan University Biochemistry of Neurodegeneration
The O’Neil lab examines the biochemistry of neurodegenerative diseases using differentiated human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs).
Karolina Palucka, PhD Jackson Laboratory Experimental Immunotherapy
The Palucka laboratory specializes in human immunology with a focus on experimental immunotherapy to develop immune-based therapeutics for cancer.
In-hyun Park, PhD Yale University Human Brain Development
The Park laboratory investigates human brain development and its related disorders through stem cell, genomics, genetics and neurobiological tools.
