Helen M. Blau
The Donald E. and Delia B. Baxter Foundation Professor and Director, Baxter Laboratory for Stem Cell Biology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Prof. Helen Blau's research area is regenerative medicine with a focus on stem cells. Her research on nuclear reprogramming and demonstrating the plasticity of cell fate using cell fusion is well known and her laboratory has also pioneered the design of biomaterials to mimic the in vivo microenvironment and direct stem cell fate. Current findings are leading to more efficient iPS generation, cell based therapies by dedifferentiation a la newts, and discovery of novel molecules and therapies.
Peter K. Jackson
Professor of Microbiology and Immunology (Baxter Labs) and of Pathology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Cell cycle and cyclin control of DNA replication .
Rachford and Carlota Harris Professor
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Nolan's group uses high throughput single cell analysis technology of kinase driven signaling cascades to interrogate autoimmunity, cancer, virology (influenza), bacterial pathogens as well as understanding normal immune system function. Using advanced flow cytometric techniques such as Mass Cytometry and computational biology approaches, we focus on high throughput drug screening, mouse models of disease in patient materials, and understanding disease processes at the single cell level.
