Best Stem Cell Research Labs in US-#7
Summary: Roel Nusse is interested in the function of Wnt signaling molecules during development and tissue regeneration. Control embryonic stem (ES) and neuronal stem cell differentiation by Wnt proteins. Function of Wnt receptors and identification of Wnt target genes by genetics and global gene expression profiling. He probably is the biggest player in Wnt field. It is really hard to miss his work as long as you stay in biology.
Roel Nusse's group built up The Wnt Homepage, which is very useful for almost every bench scientist. Actually I found out this webpage first before I checked out his lab website.

Judith S. Eisen Ph.D. Professor and Director of the institute of Neuroscience at University of Oregon
Judith S. Eisen is well know in zebrafish field, she is mainly working on spcification and patterning of neurons and neural crest stem cells in embryonic zebrafish. I heard she is very nice and supportive to her graduate students and postdocs. Her lab has done a lot pioneer and foundation work for zebrafish community, particularly in nervous system. As long as zebrafish model is popular, Judith Eisen's contribution will be remembered.

Sean J. Morrison, Ph.D. HHMI Investigator and Director of the University of Michigan Center for Stem Cell Biology
Sean Morrison is investigating the mechanisms that regulate stem cell function in the nervous and hematopoietic systems, particularly the mechanisms that regulate stem cell self-renewal and aging. Parallel studies of these mechanisms in stem cells from two different tissues will reveal the extent to which different types of stem cells employ similar or different mechanisms to regulate these critical functions.
Last year, Sean J. Morrison's team identified a single molecular switch which plays a central role to control aging-related decline in stem cell function and tissue regeneration, a protein called inhibitor of cyclin-dependent kinase 4A.
