Committee on Development, Regeneration, and Stem Cell Biology
The Committee on Development, Regeneration, and Stem Cell Biology (DRSB) is an interdisciplinary PhD-granting program focused on understanding the fundamental question of how a single cell, the fertilized egg, ultimately produces a fully patterned adult organism, as well the related question of how adult structures regenerate.
I am very excited by the opportunities to work and learn at the MBL. The MBL provides an environment of intellectual stimulation where scientists from all over the world convene to work and share ideas. In addition, I am able to collaborate and learn from leading experts in evolutionary developmental biology and experimental embryology working on non-traditional model systems. Finally, the ability to spend time in beautiful Woods Hole out on Cape Cod in such a historical institution is of course a plus in my books.
