Michaela Patterson and colleagues publish study in Nature Genetics

Some people are better than others at recovering from a wounded heart, according to a new USC Stem Cell study published in Nature Genetics. In the study, first author Michaela Patterson, a postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Henry Sucov, […]

Michaela Patterson and Lindsey Barske launch “Preparing for the faculty job search”

“I think we’re all here for the same reason,” said Michaela Patterson, a postdoc in the Eli and Edythe Broad Center for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at USC. “We’re considering applying for faculty jobs, and we’re at a […]

Michaela Patterson will present at the ISSCR 2017 Annual Meeting

What’s the cure for a broken heart? Ask Michaela Patterson, a postdoctoral scholar in the USC Stem Cell laboratory of Henry Sucov. Patterson will deliver a presentation about heart regeneration at the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) Annual […]

Michaela Patterson and Lindsey Mork win Doerr Stem Cell Challenge Grant

Congratulations to Michaela Patterson, whose collaborative proposal with Lindsey Mork won a Doerr Stem Cell Challenge Grant. Together, they will use zebrafish to investigate the role of the gene Tnni3k in heart regeneration. When activated, this gene appears to lower […]
