Magdalena Zernicka-Goetz, PhD

Professor of Developmental and Stem Cell Biology, Department of Physiology, Development, and Neuroscience
University of Cambridge, UK
Bren Professor of Biology and Biological Engineering, Division of Biology and Biological Engineering
California Institute of Technology

Magdalena Zernicka-Goetz’s research specializes in developmental plasticity, cell fate specification, and morphogenesis in the mouse and human embryo. Her group investigates molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying the specification of cell lineages and patterning. The mouse embryo is their major model system because this allows them to combine cell biological and molecular genetic approaches with live embryo imaging to study development in a system that is close to our own human development.

Hosted by Benoit Bruneau, PhD, Director of the Gladstone Institute of Cardiovascular Disease.

The GICD/CVRI Seminar series is a collaborative series between the Gladstone Institute of Cardiovascular Disease and the Cardiovascular Research Institute at UC San Francisco.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

At Gladstone, we are committed to providing events and professional development activities that resonate with our community’s diverse members. Our goal is to develop creative programming that encompasses a wide variety of ideas and perspectives to inspire, educate, and engage with everyone within our walls.

We want to effect positive change through our events and activities by providing a platform for discussions on important topics related to increasing diversity and inclusiveness in the sciences.
