Best Stem Cell Research Labs in US-#7

Roel Nusse Ph.D. HHMI Investigator and Professor at Stanford University

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.

Postdoctoral Fellow Positions at Wake Forest University School of Medicine

Two postdoctoral fellow positions are available immediately to study human chromosomal fragile sites in oncogenesis. Our studies are aimed at understanding the genesis of breakpoints at or near fragile sites during oncogenesis. Ongoing projects include examination of chromatin structure of cancer-specific fragile sites, and investigating the mechanism of RET/PTC rearrangement. Highly motivated individuals with a background in molecular biology and biochemistry and knowledge of chromatin biology/DNA repair are encouraged to apply. Experience in human cell culture, chromatin immunoprecipitation, cytogenetic analysis, and familiarity with image analysis computer programs, is desired.

Interested applicants please send a CV, summary of research interests, and at least two letters of recommendation to: Yuh-Hwa Wang, Ph.D. Associate Professor, Biochemistry Department, Wake Forest University School of Medicine, Winston-Salem, NC 27157-1016 Office: (336)716-6186, Fax: (336)716-7671 Email:

Best Stem Cell Research Labs in US-#6

I want to recommend a couple zebrafish labs, since zebrafish is so hot now...

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.

One of my favorate scientists...

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.
