We seek a student to become involved in a new program at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School in stem cell biology-based regenerative medicine, focusing on using novel methods to direct stem cells into therapeutically relevant cell types such as pancreatic beta cells and intestinal cell types. Using new computational methods and the direct synthesis of thousands of genomic constructs this new research program seeks to understand how transcription factors dictate embryonic stem cell (ES cell) fate determination.
The student would use a high-throughput genomic screening platform to understand and manipulate transcription factor activity in differentiating embryonic stem cells. The work is experimental in nature but highly collaborative with computational biologists at MIT.
The research activities and funding listed below are automatically derived from
NIH ExPORTER and other sources, which might result in incorrect or missing items.
