Neda Bidoki (Shariati and Jönsson labs)
Neda's goal is to 1) Characterize pluripotent stem cell lineage commitment by time-resolved single cell multiomic and imaging measurements and 2) Develop robust and scalable computational methods to provide greater insights into the evolution of pluripotent stem cell regulatory networks.
Neda's research will advance our understanding of the transcriptional regulatory networks that control differentiation of pluripotent stem cells, and may facilitate the development of new technologies enabling the propagation and lineage differentiation of embryonic stem cells (ESCs) for regenerative medicine applications.
The project is a collaboration between the labs of Professors Jönsson and Shariati. The Jönsson Lab aims to understand how the immune system evolves in the context of human disease. They develop mathematical models and build computational methods for the analysis of high throughput genomic and immunological data. The Shariati lab studies the molecular feedback between the cell cycle and pluripotency.
