Mapping the Embryo for Developmental Biologists & Stem Cell Researchers; LifeMap Discovery® – a Roadmap of Mammalian Cell Ontology

Posted by on March 30th, 2014

Understanding how cells differentiate during embryonic development is invaluable for the in vitro derivation of functional cells from stem cells. However, mapping the human embryo, including characterization of all the cell types that make up the developing and mature human body, and of all embryonic progenitor cell types that appear in intermediate developmental stages, is […]

From SNPs to starlings: Avian Model Systems 2014, 5th-8th March

Posted by on March 17th, 2014

Deep snow failed to chill the atmosphere at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratories as the most diverse Avian Model Systems meeting yet took place. The model organisms involved included transgenic quail and zebra finches, canaries, and even barn owls and the American white-throated sparrow, alongside the more prosaic chicken. The interaction of ideas from the endocrine […]

Dicty World Race – 2014

Posted by on March 1st, 2014

The first ever World Dicty Race  will require cells to navigate a complex microfluidic maze to reach a pool of chemoattractant at the finish line.  Diffusion of the chemoattractant will create a spatial gradient to guide cells along the shortest path to the finish line. The challenge is to engineer Dicty or HL60 cells to […]

Slidecasts and videos from conference on congenital melanocytic nevus

Posted by on February 5th, 2014

Limited time offer! Read on.   As a developmental biologist, I have found my calling in applying what I have learned about normal embryogenesis to better understanding the pathophysiology of various human congenital malformations. Often these are rare diseases, and I work closely with patient associations devoted to those conditions and learning to live with […]
