iPS Cell Technology, Gene Editing and Disease Research
CCR Eminent Lecture Rudolf Jaenisch, a Whitehead Institute Founding Member, focuses on understanding epigenetic regulation of gene expression (the biological mechanisms that affect how genetic information is converted into cell structures but that don’t alter the genes in the process). Most recently, this work has led to major advances in our understanding of embryonic stem cells and “induced pluripotent stem” (IPS) cells, which appear identical to embryonic stem cells but can be created from adult cells without using an egg. In 2007, the Jaenisch lab was one of three labs worldwide that reported success...
