Master's of Stem Cell Biology Graduates Advance Their Careers
Henry Aubyn came to our program after completing his BS in Biochemistry at the University of Minnesota in 2014, and while he was employed in the laboratory of Angela Panoskaltsis-Mortari, a member of the Stem Cell Biology graduate faculty. Henry's research project and thesis were entitled "Facilitation of Human Induced Pluripotent Stem (iPS) Cell Differentiation to Endoderm with a Novel Histone Deacetylase (HDAC) Inhibitor". After working at the Antibody Applications Quality Control Department of Bio-Techne for 2 years, Henry matriculated into the University of Minnesota Medical School in 2018.
Madison Tschann obtained her BS in Genetics & Cell Development from the College of Biological Sciences at the University of Minnesota in 2017, and worked at the University of Minnesota Genomics Center before matriculating into the SCB MS program in Fall 2017. Madison's thesis entitled "Production of induced regulatory T-cells through CRISPR/Cas9 based gene editing" was nominated for the Best MS thesis by the SCB graduate program. After obtaining her MS degree, Madison continued her research in the laboratory of her thesis advisor, Mark Osborn, and will enter the MD/PhD program at the Stritch School of Medicine at Loyola University Chicago in July 2020. Madison was a co-author of the paper "CRISPR/Cas9-Based Cellular Engineering for Targeted Gene Overexpression" published in 2018.
