Development and regeneration of insulin-producing β cells: Diabetes is associated with a loss of β cells. The goal of the Parsons lab is to find therapeutic routes that can increase β-cell numbers and reverse a…
Wenqi Wang, Ph.D.
The central question the Wang lab is interested in investigating is what are the signaling networks underlying tissue homeostasis and organ size control as well as the role of their dysregulation in tumorigenesis….
Claudia Benavente, Ph.D.
Understanding epigenetic deregulation in pediatric cancer tumorigenesis
The Benavente Lab research interests focus on elucidating the molecular and cellular mechanisms that drive tumor progression. Our research is specifically focus on the genetic and epigenetic…
Zeba Wunderlich, Ph.D.
Understanding the organization of regulatory information in the genome
The Wunderlich lab is interested in studying how regulatory information — when, where, and to what level genes are expressed — is encoded in animal…
Scott Atwood, PhD
Scott received his Ph.D. in Molecular Biology from University of Oregon where he studied how cell polarity influenced cell fate in fly neural stem cells. He continued his training at Stanford University where…
