How do cells choose their fate?

Our doors open April 1, 2015!

The Atwood lab is interested in how cells choose their fate. We use models of skin cancer, skin and hair follicle development, and brain dysfunction to determine how kinases control the genetic landscape of the cell to influence fate.

Positions available

We are recruiting graduate students and postdocs who are interested in exploring the signal transduction and genetic regulation of stem cell maintenance and basal cell carcinoma.
