Welcome the Lerou Laboratory! We are part of the newly formed Department of Pediatric Newborn Medicine Medicine and the Division of Genetics at Brigham and Women's Hospital and the Division of Newborn Medicine at Children's Hospital, Boston, Harvard Medical School.
Our research goals are to advance the fundamental understanding of pluripotent stem cell biology in order to unlock their therapeutic and research potential. To achieve this goal we will plan to apply novel cell imaging techniques and genomic approaches to explore differentiation dynamics in human pluripotent stem cells. These techniques are coupled with single cell analysis and computational biology approaches to improve our understanding of complex characteristics associated with human pluripotency.
