“Terminal Cell Fate: Inherited or Acquired?”
Esteban O Mazzoni, PhD
Assistant Professor of Biology, Department of Biology, NYU

Embryonic stem cell (ESC) differentiation has the potential to be instrumental in cell-based therapies and in vitro disease modeling and chemical screens. To fulfill those expectations, ESCs have to be directed at high efficiency to disease-relevant cell types, either by the application of extracellular signals or direct programming by forced expression of transcription factors. Therefore, our long-term goal is to understand how extracellular signals and transcription factors control cell fate and apply that knowledge to differentiate ESC into disease-relevant neuronal cell types.
