Rao Lab research was one of the showcased research programs at the 2018 Emerging Scholars Symposium at the A. Alfred Taubman Medical Research Institute on April 13, 2018. The topic was "COMPASS acts as a temporal rheostat to control retinal neuroectoderm versus mesoderm fate choice.” Our seminar discussed a newly discovered master transcription factor that controls retinal cell fate from embryonic stem cells, and surprisingly also regulates the formation of mesoderm cells, such as heart and blood cells.
