Neuroscience Program Graduate Student

Areas of Interest

Stacy is a fourth year neuroscience graduate student in the Duncan Lab. The goal of her thesis project is to establish a systematic approach to produce auditory sensory cells of the inner ear from stem cells. To that end, she is studying the role of FGFs in early otic specification from stem cell cultures and working out a method to enrich cells committed to otic fate.
