Inaugural Distinguished Biosciences Lecture

Elaine Fuchs

 

Elaine Fuchs, Ph.D.
Investigator, Howard Hughes Medical Institute; Rebecca C. Lancefield Professor, The Rockefeller University

Stem Cells in Silence, Action and Cancer

June 20, 2014 at noon
Berkeley Lab, Bldg. 66 Auditorium

Dr. Fuchs is one of the top researchers in stem cell research, a recipient of many awards, and past President of the International Society of Stem Cell Research.

Using skin as a model, Dr. Fuchs explores the unique properties of skin stem cells that allow them to both replenish themselves (self-renew) and also maintain and regenerate the epidermis and its appendages such as sweat glands and hair follicles. She studies how resident stem cells of skin communicate and respond to their local neighbors (their “niche”) and how these signals prompt them to adjust their program of gene expression and begin to make tissue, and how new signals instruct them when to stop once enough tissue has been made. By studying these basic properties of stem cells, Dr. Fuchs’ team has made major contributions towards understanding how tissues repair injuries and how abnormalities in stem cell behavior can cause cancers.
