Much of science relies on the tools that we use to make new discoveries, but not all tools are physical. Check out this profile featuring our PI, Kris Saha, to find out what tools he uses to move our research forward.
The first Saha Lab publication is out! Drug-loaded nanoparticles induce gene expression in human pluripotent stem cell derivatives co-authored by Leah Escalante has been published in Nanoscale
We bid a fond farewell to Leah Escalante as she moves on to the Broad Institute in Boston. Thank you Leah and good luck!
