The CRM recently welcomed 4 new CRM members: Tony Tsai (Developmental Biology), Yao Chen (Neuroscience), Tristan Li (Neuroscience), and Michelle Oyen (BME), bringing our member count to 100!
CRM Co-Director, Farsh Guilak PhD, was elected to the National Academy of Engineering for “contributions to regenerative medicine and mechanobiology and their application to the development of clinical therapies.” Election to the National Academy of Engineering is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to an engineer. Congratulations, Farsh, on this richly-deserved honor.
A virtual symposium on FGFR syndromes is planned for March 17-18, 2022. Dave Ornitz, who is a member of the Born a Hero Medical Advisory Board, will be presenting.
Research from the Kroll lab (Developmental Biology) was recently featured in an article from the Associated Press and The Takeaway podcast from NPR. This research, done in collaboration with Joe Dougherty’s lab, describes creating mouse models and iPSC lines carrying mutations for a patient’s mutations in MYT1L, to better understand autism.
