Stem Cells as Architects of Their Niches and Their Mechanical Forces

1/1/2021; 74 minutes

Dr. Elaine Fuchs is an American cell biologist, famous for her work on the biology and molecular mechanisms of mammalian skin and skin diseases, who helped lead the modernization of dermatology. Fuchs pioneered reverse genetics approaches, which assess protein function first and then assess its role in development and disease. In particular, Fuchs researches skin stem cells, and their production of hair and skin. She is an investigator at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and the Rebecca C. Lancefield Professor of Mammalian Cell Biology and Development at The Rockefeller University. In this talk, she presents her paper as published in the September 2, 2020 issue of Nature. (#36176)
