Roy lab contributes to understanding early spinal cord development

Associate Professor Sushmita Roy and her lab are part of a team at the Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Center that is developing ways to turn stem cells into specific types of spinal cord neurons and cells in the hindbrain, which was published in Science Advances on September 30. DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.abn7430

The research combines Sushmita’s machine learning and gene regulatory networks expertise with collaborator Randolph Ashton’s expertise in neurodevelopment and stem cell bioengineering, allowing them to develop a unique resource for mapping gene expression changes that mark differences between neuronal cell subtypes along the hindbrain and spinal cord.
