Understanding the Intestinal Stem Cell Compartment in Health and Disease

Momentum Fellow (2018-2020)

Philippe Depeille, PhD, University of California, San Francisco

Dr. Depeille is analyzing how intestinal homeostasis is maintained with a high turnover and consistent draw of the stem cell niche, which will provide insight into initiation of colorectal cancer.
