Talk Title: “Dissecting Stem Cell Fate with Forkhead FOXO Transcription Factors"

The Ghaffari Laboratory is focused on elucidating signals that regulate transcriptional programs of cell fate decisions and mechanisms of alterations of these in disease. Dr. Ghaffari's team uses embryonic stem (ES) and hematopoietic stem cells to address these questions. Ghaffari's laboratory has identified Forkhead FoxO transcription factors as critical regulators of cell fate in these stem cells.
