Dr. Barbara Panning a Professor in the Department of Biochemistry & Biophysics at the University of California, San Francisco and also a member of the Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regeneration Medicine and Stem Cell Research, focuses on stem cell epigenetics, studying how chromatin modifiers, non-coding RNAs impact pluripotency and self renewal. Pluripotency, the capacity to differentiate into all cell types, is a fundamental property of embryonic stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells. Because these stem cells can self-renew in the pluripotent state indefinitely, they are regarded as a major potential source of material for stem cell-based therapies. However, the mechanisms governing self-renewal and pluripotency are not completely understood. The Panning lab investigates the role of epigenetic regulators, a class of proteins and RNAs that affect the way DNA is packaged in the nucleus and control accessibility and readout of our genetic code.
