Ali-Mortazavi-headshot sz-web
 
CCBS associated faculty member, Ali Mortazavi from the Department of Developmental and Cell Biology has been named a recipient of the prestigious 2013 National Institutes of Health Director's New Innovator Awards. The highly selective award program supports projects by early-career researchers that show potential to transform scientific fields and accelerate the translation of research into new ways to improve human health. His project will explore how DNA codes the precise activities of genes involved with development. His lab will create methods to measure how this gene expression is affected by changes in the organization of DNA in embryonic stem cells as they differentiate into neurons and cardiac muscle cells. Mortazavi believes his research will identify fundamental principles of gene regulation as well as the specific DNA elements critical to stem cell differentiation.
