In the Freedman Lab, knocking out primary cilia reveals insights about the role the organelles play in cell fate and disease development. Read More

Deletion of Lamin B1 Linked to Nuclear Abnormalities Seen in Cancer

March 11, 2022 | Categories: Research, Uncategorized | Tagged: , ,

Using gene-editing tools to decrease expression of lamin B1 in two stem cell models, the researchers show that deletion of lamin B1 causes change in stem cell function and nuclear shape – and contributes to leukemia progression. Read More

Regulating Cells With Designed Proteins

March 1, 2022 | Categories: Core Faculty, Research | Tagged: , , , ,

ISCRM researchers have developed a tool to selectively control the PRC2 complex – an epigenetic regulator that influences cell fate across multiple stages of development. That tool is a computer-designed protein binder engineered in partnership with the Institute for Protein Design (IPD). Read More

Priming the Heart for Regeneration

January 10, 2022 | Categories: Research | Tagged: , , ,

In 2015, a team of inquisitive young scientists, absorbed in the study of metabolism, regeneration, and biological development, set out to answer a question. Could the way cells produce energy help explain why certain organisms have an envious ability to regenerate heart tissue after injury? And, if so, could that knowledge be used to help heal human hearts? Read More
