Stem Cells from the Sofa Speaker Series: Dr. Katie Cockburn
In this episode of Stem Cells from the Sofa, Dr. Cockburn will give an overview of how we are using intravital imaging to answer fundamental questions about epidermal stem cell biology. In particular, she will highlight recent progress in defining how both self-renewal and differentiation behaviors are controlled and carried out during healthy turnover of the adult skin.
Dr. Katie Cockburn is a NYSCF Druckenmiller Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Genetics at Yale University. She completed her PhD training at the University of Toronto with Dr. Janet Rossant, studying early cell fate choices in the mammalian blastocyst. As a postdoc in the lab of Dr. Valentina Greco, she now combines in vivo imaging, molecular analyses and genetic strategies to understand how stem cells make the right decisions at the right times and places to fuel lifelong regeneration of the skin.
The Stem Cells from the Sofa speaker talks are 20 minutes in length, followed by a Q&A session that is open to all attendees. Intended audience: scientists, trainees and research professionals.
