Virtual Seminar – Kristin Baldwin, PhD – “How Does Neuronal Diversification Vary Across Species – Interspecies Brain Chimera and Reprogramming Approaches”
April 2, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Kristin Baldwin, PhD
Columbia University Irving Medical Center
Scripps Research Institute
About the Speaker: Our lab is interested in understanding how genetic and epigenetic changes generate cellular diversity, with a particular focus on neurons of the olfactory system and central nervous system. We employ stem cell technologies such as cloning and induced pluripotency, gene targeting in mice, molecular biology and advanced imaging techniques to identify rules governing cell identity and cellular diversification. We are also interested in using induced pluripotent stem cells and neurons derived from them to generate in vitro models of human neurological diseases.
