Event details

Fiona's research interest is in the role of stem cells in adult tissue maintenance. Many of her studies use mammalian epidermis as a model system, both in the context of genetically modified mice and epidermal reconstitution in culture. Her current projects explore self-renewal and lineage selection by human and mouse epidermal stem cells, the role of stem cells in epidermal and oral tumour formation, and the nature of mesenchymal cells in skin.
