ASHBi Seminar (Dr.  Samantha A  Morris)

Seminar time has been changed. (7 June 2022)

We will have ASHBi Seminar with Dr. Samantha A Morris from Washington University in St. Louis, as a lecturer.

Dr. Morris, an assistant professor of developmental biology and genetics at Washington University in St. Louis, is a leading scientist in stem cell engineering. Having focused on gene regulatory networks to try to understand cell identity and also cell type engineering during her postdoc at George Daley’s lab at Harvard, she started her own lab at Washington in 2015 and has been doing really remarkable work on how to use single-cell technologies to deconstruct cell identity to improve the efficiency and fidelity of reprogramming. She will talk about recently developed novel computational and experimental approaches to dissect changes in cell identity to improve the efficiency and fidelity of reprogramming.

If you belong to Kyoto University and have any interests in the topic, you are welcome to attend this seminar.
