Adam Gracz - Principal Investigator
Adam conducted his pre- and postdoctoral studies at UNC in Dr. Scott Magness’s lab, where his research focused on intrinsic and extrinsic regulation of intestinal stem cells. He is currently an assistant professor in the Department of Genetics and Center for Gastrointestinal Biology and Disease at UNC.
Deepthi Tulasi - Research Technician
Deepthi is a recent graduate of UNC. She is using mouse models to study chromatin regulation of intestinal stem cell differentiation. Deepthi is also characterizing subpopulations of biliary epithelial cells using transgenic reporter mice and single cell organoid cultures. She is interested in pursuing doctoral studies in toxicology.
Diego Martinez - Undergraduate
Diego is a senior at UNC. He is using organoids and in vivo models to understand upstream regulation of Sox9 in the liver.
Maria Fonseca - Undergraduate
Maria is a senior at UNC. She is developing transgenic biliary organoid lines using piggyBAC transposons and CRISPR/Cas9.
