Samantha Morris, PhD

Assistant Professor of Genetics and Developmental Biology, Washington University in St. Louis
Allen Distinguished Investigator, Washington University in St. Louis

Samantha Morris trained in developmental biology at the University of Cambridge and Harvard Medical School, and established her independent research group at Washington University in St. Louis in 2015. Her research focuses on dissecting and manipulating the gene regulatory networks that define cell identity, and applying this knowledge to engineer clinically relevant cell types. The Morris Lab also develops new single-cell technologies to map cell lineage and identity in parallel to better understand how cell identity can be reprogrammed.

The seminar will be from 3–4pm followed by a Q&A session from 4:00–4:30pm.
