Cell mechanics lead to chicken feathers, hair

Tue, 07/18/2017 - 17:17
Professor Sanjay Kumar’s lab collaborated to show how identical embryonic skin cells organize to produce follicles and feathers, based on resistance from the materials underlying the skin. This could lead to more practical use of stem cells to produce skin graft materials. The work was conducted with Amy Shyer, a Miller postdoctoral fellow, and visiting scholar Alan Rodrigues, of Professor Harland’s lab, and BioE PhD student Elena Kassianidou.
