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 the number of mononuclear diploid cardiomyocytes, which form new cardiac muscle following an injury such as a heart attack.
