TomorrowsDiscoveries Treating Diseases by Understanding Cell Identity  Patrick Cahan PhD
#TomorrowsDiscoveries: Biomedical engineer Patrick Cahan studies the molecular basis of cell type identity. He is making a tool that measures how closely cells grown in a lab mimic those in our bodies, which could help pave the way to replacing damaged tissue and more effectively studying diseases in the lab. The tool will also help him detect how cancer rewires the normal circuitry of a cell. Discover more at: http://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/research/about-faculty/discoveries-for-a-better-tomorrow.html
