Meet USC Stem Cell scientist and former professional volleyball player Leonardo Morsut

USC Stem Cell scientist and former professional volleyball player Leonardo Morsut has built a synthetic cellular communication system known as “synNotch.” This system could enable scientists to direct the behavior of cells in useful ways—ranging from killing cancer to regenerating the body after injury.

Doerr Stem Cell Challenge Grants: heart regeneration and cell migration

Just as there are times when two heads are better than one, there are times when two labs are better than one. Thanks to the new Doerr Stem Cell Challenge Grants, teams of postdoctoral researchers from different USC labs have received up to $10,000 in funding to pursue interdisciplinary one-year projects. Two teams used the …
