Biology Seminar: Sharon Torigoe, Lewis & Clark College

Sharon Torigoe, Lewis & Clark College

Science Trivia- 4pm
Talk Begins- 4:10pm

Dr. Torigoe studies pluripotent stem cells (PSCs).  These cells hold important promise for regenerative medicine due to their capacity to differentiate into any functional cell type. The future success of generating and utilizing PSCs depends on gaining deeper understanding of the unique characteristics of PSCs. Dr. Torigoe’s lab investigates the mechanisms for transcriptional regulation that are necessary to maintain the functions of one type of PSC, the mouse embryonic stem cell. In particular, her research explores how these transcriptional programs are encoded into the genome and how that information is read and interpreted by proteins.
