Ray focuses on novel aspects of tumor evolution and drug resistance using basal cell carcinomas.
Amar is a graduate student in the Medical Scientist Training program and interested in cancer signaling and structural biology. He is interested in the molecular basis of tumor resistance.
Inna is the lab administrative assistant. In her free time she enjoys singing with different choral groups.
Jillian focuses on the epigenetic mechanisms underlying early epithelial differentiation by understanding chromatin architecture and dynamics
Samantha is a graduate student in the Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine program. She is investigating epigenetic mechanisms directing early epithelial differentiation and the effects of this chromatin remodeling on cell cycle regulation.
François is a postdoc working on cancer resistance using basal cell carcinomas.
Annie is a postdoc working with novel proteomic techniques to study p63 mechanisms during epithelial development.
Siegen is a lab technician interested in the integration of developmental biology, cancer biology, and genetics through the study of hedgehog dependent cancers and in the structural mechanisms of Gli activation.
Hanson is the Oro Laboratory Manager and leads the Therapeutic Reprogramming effort in the lab. He is focused on development of scalable and cGMP compatible skin differentiation protocols.
Lingjie focuses on the transcriptional regulation of developing systems by both coding and non-coding elements. He is interested in chromatin dynamics during skin differentiation.
Alex is pursuing his interest in transcriptional regulation of neural development and cancer using cerebellar development by hedgehog as a model.
Catherine is a graduate student in the Medical Scientist Training Program and interested in the novel mechanisms of cancer resistance in hedgehog dependent cancers.
Jessica trained as a CIRM Bridges research assistant and now is a research assistant working on mechanisms of skin differentiation
Jessica is a lab technician working on the mechanisms of I-BAR proteins in spinocerebellar ataxia. She is interested in how genes coding for I-BAR proteins affect hedgehog-dependent pathways as well as cerebellar development.
