Dr. Shiri Gur-Cohen is an Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Division of Regenerative Medicine at UC San Diego. Her lab studies epithelial stem cells throughout their lifetimes. She talks about lymphatics in the intestinal stem cell niche, 3D imaging techniques, and sharing her science with a wider audience.

The Stem Cell Science Round Up
Non-Invasive Organoid Monitoring – Flexible electronics enable chronic recording of cortical organoids for up to 120 days while preserving their morphology, cytoarchitecture, and cell composition.
Human Neuronal Maturation – Researchers identified an epigenetic developmental program that sets the timing of human neuronal maturation.
The Gut-Liver Axis and Intestinal Stem Cells – Liver-derived pigment epithelium-derived factor restrains intestinal stem cell proliferation.
Recovery After Lung Infection – The TGF-β receptor 2 is important for lung endothelial cells to recover after injury due to influenza virus or SARS-CoV-2 infection.
