Elaine Fuchs, Ph.D.
Rebecca C. Lancefield Professor of Mammalian Cell Biology and Development, Rockefeller University
Investigator, Howard Hughes Medical Institute
Elaine Fuchs’ lab couples in vitro studies with classical genetics, RNAi, and CRISPR-Cas technologies in mice to study the biology of skin stem cells. Her research employs high throughput genomics, single cell sequencing, live imaging, cell biology and functional approaches to unravel the pathways that balance stem cell maintenance and differentiation and to explore aberrant routes in aging and cancers. She also investigates how stem cells establish unique chromatin landscapes and programs of gene expression, and how this shifts in response to changes in their local environment.
