Welcome, Tina!

New rotation student

Christina (Tina) Piarowski is a first year student in the Cell Biology, Stem Cells, and Development Program. Tina will study the differences in DUX4-induced gene expression in the early embryo versus muscle cells, and how these differences might inform our understanding of FSHD. We are excited to have her with... [Read More]
