Presented by
Elaine Fuchs, PhD
Rebecca C. Lancefield Professor
Investigator, Howard Hughes Medical Institute

Dr. Elaine Fuchs’ lab couples in vitro studies with mouse genetics to study the biology of skin stem cells. Her team 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. They also study the signaling pathways that must be turned on and off at the right time and place for adult skin stem cells to become activated to regenerate tissue. They seek to discover the activating signals from the neighboring cells that instruct the stem cells to make hair or repair wounds, and the inhibitory signals that tell them to stop making tissue.
