Dr. Valerie Horsley is an Associate Professor of Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology, and Associate Professor of Dermatology at Yale University. Her lab studies how adult stem cells within epithelial tissues maintain tissue homeostasis, wound healing and can contribute to cancer formation.
Dr. Henner Farin is a Young Investigator in the German Cancer Consortium, and a Junior Research Group Leader at the Georg-Speyer-Haus Institute for Tumor Biology and Experimental Therapy. His group uses organoids to study cell signaling in intestinal stem cells and colorectal cancer.
Dr. Valentina Greco is the Carolyn Slayman Professor of Genetics at Yale University. Her lab has developed novel live imaging approaches to track and manipulate stem cells in live animals, allowing them to study the complex orchestration of tissue regeneration using the skin as a model system.
