WHAT WE DO:
We study the earliest steps of human development from the zygote to an adult functional cell to learn fundamental principles about development and cell differentiation.
Join us to figure out some important challenges:
Cell Therapy for Diabetes. Understanding metabolic disorders using stem cells.
Understanding genome stability and preventing abnormalities in early development. See why in Nature.
The Eglilab is located in New York City, United States.
Our most recent published work:
Stress in life starts already in the very beginning. In this study published in Cell, authors Kat Palmerola, Selma Amrane, Alejandro de los Angeles, Shuangyi Xu and Ning Wang show that DNA replication stress is affecting the stability of the genome and developmental potential in humans in the first few cell cycles after fertilization.
