Acting Professor of Molecular, Cell, & Developmental Biology, Faculty Director of Diversity, UC Santa Cruz Genomics Institute

Molecular, Cell, & Developmental Biology Department, Genomics Institute

Areas of expertise: Biomedical Sciences, DNA, RNA, Proteins, Evolution, Genomics, Genetics, Molecular, Cell, and Developmental Biology, Stem Cells

Biography, Education and Training

  My research involves using pluripotent stem cells from a variety of primate species and high throughput sequencing methods to study how genome evolution affects human development and disease. My lab is located in the Institute for the Biology of Stem Cells. With funding from NIH-NHGRI, we are exploring the mechanisms by which transposable elements lead to new gene regulatory programs important for the evolution of new traits. With funding from NIH-NIMH we are studying the role ... more »

Biography, Education and Training

 My research aims to understand how stem cells decide to choose between two conflicting fates: division versus differentiation. I combine emerging genome-editing technologies with single cell imaging to determine regulatory principles of cell fate decisions in pluripotent cells.
