Nicole C Dubois, PhD
- ASSISTANT PROFESSOR | Cell, Developmental & Regenerative Biology
Research Topics:Cardiovascular, Cellular Differentiation, Developmental Biology, Molecular Biology, Regeneration, Stem Cells
In the Dubois lab we are interested in understanding human heart development and disease. We are using the human pluripotent stem cell (hPSC) model to investigate the cellular and molecular mechanisms of cell fate specification and disease in the early human heart.
