Cell & Molecular Biology Graduate Group


Regenerative Biology

The following DSRB labs are interested in Regenrative Biology:

George Cotsarelis Stem cells; Hair follicle; Wounding; Aging; Skin cancer
Jonathan Epstein Transcriptional regulation of cardiac development and function using mouse models
Michael Granato Axonal guidance, nerve regeneration and learning behaviors in zebrafish
Robert Heuckeroth Enteric nervous system precursor differentiation, migration, proliferation, axon guidance, and stem cell biology
Rajan Jain Nuclear architecture, nuclear lamina, chromatin, epigenetics, genome organization, heart development, stem cell biology
Christopher Lengner The overarching goal of my research program is to gain an understanding of the molecular mechanisms that govern stem cell potency and how dysregulation of these mechanisms can contribute to disease onset and progression, including oncogenesis.
Thomas Leung We seek to improve our understanding of mammalian tissue regeneration and to develop novel therapeutics for regenerative medicine.
Sarah Millar Development of hair follicles, mammary glands, taste papillae and teeth; regeneration and neogenesis of hair follicles and teeth; hair follicle, mammary gland and dental stem cells; skin and mammary gland tumorigenesis; microRNA functions in embryonic and postnatal skin and mammary glands; functions of histone deacetylases in skin and hair follicle development and renewal.
Edward Morrisey Lung development, cardiac development, vascular development, Wnt signaling, regulation of gene transcription, GATA factors, forkhead factors
