I have been working with pluripotent stem cells (PSCs) since 1992 and with the Dalton lab since 2005. I arrived here from Raleigh, NC, via central NY. My previous work was in labs that studied PSCs, including UNC Chapel Hill, NCSU, and a small biotech firm in RTP, NC. My role at UGA is to manage the Stem Cell Core lab which serves various labs in the U.S. through a NIH funded program project of which Dr. Dalton is PI. I maintain high quality stocks of hESCs and hiPSCs, generate disease models of hIPSCs, and differentiate hPSCs for collaborators at several institutions. My research encompasses diverse analysis of hepatic, pancreatic, and neural hPSC differentiations.
