Developmental & Stem Cell Biology

Brian Feldman, MD, PhD

Primary Thematic Area: 
Tissue / Organ Biology & Endocrinology
Secondary Thematic Area: 
Developmental & Stem Cell Biology
Research Summary: 
We aim to elucidate previously unrecognized paracrine and endocrine signaling pathways that regulate stem cell fate and differentiation decisions that modulate body composition and metabolism.

Abigail (Abby) Buchwalter Cool, PhD

Primary Thematic Area: 
Developmental & Stem Cell Biology
Secondary Thematic Area: 
Human Genetics
Research Summary: 
We seek to understand how the organization of the nucleus is established, specialized across cell types, and maintained over time to influence cellular identity.

Deepak Lamba, PhD

Primary Thematic Area: 
Developmental & Stem Cell Biology
Secondary Thematic Area: 
Neurobiology
Research Summary: 
Stem Cell Technologies to Understand Retinal Development and Disease

David Raleigh, PhD, MD

Primary Thematic Area: 
Cancer Biology & Cell Signaling
Secondary Thematic Area: 
Developmental & Stem Cell Biology
Research Summary: 
We are interested in understanding how developmental signaling pathway drive the growth of brain tumors.

Alex Pollen, PhD

Primary Thematic Area: 
Neurobiology
Secondary Thematic Area: 
Developmental & Stem Cell Biology
Research Summary: 
We study how genetic changes that accumulated over the last 6 million years of human evolution influence specialized features of brain development using single cell genomics, cerebral organoid models of ape brain development, and genome engineering.

Tomasz Nowakowski, PhD

Developmental origins of cellular diversity in the nervous system. Molecular and cellular mechanisms of cortical development.

Bruce Wang, MD

Primary Thematic Area: 
Developmental & Stem Cell Biology
Secondary Thematic Area: 
Tissue / Organ Biology & Endocrinology
Research Summary: 
We study how the different cell types in the liver, in particular the hepatocyte, are generated during development, patterned and maintained during adulthood, and regenerate after injury.
