DanStem Seminar by Danwei Huangfu - 29 June 2016, 10:30
Danwei Huangfu, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York Title: A CRISPR view of human biology through the lens of embryonic stem cells
Danwei Huangfu, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York
The ability to program naïve cells or to reprogram differentiated cells into particular fates will open the door to the discovery of novel therapeutics for diseases such as diabetes. The goal of Huangfu's lab is to understand the fundamental principles that govern the identity of a cell, and to use these principles to manipulate cell fates for regenerative medicine. In pursuit of this goal, they employ a variety of approaches including cellular programming and reprogramming through gene transduction, directed differentiation of embryonic stem (ES) cells, chemical screening, mouse genetics, adult tissue injury and regeneration, and tissue/cell transplantation.
