WID’s Randolph Ashton, assistant professor of biomedical engineering, is the new associate director for UW–Madison’s Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Center.
The Wisconsin State Journal, as part of its feature highlighting stem cell research at UW 20 years after James Thomson’s discovery, highlights WID researchers Randolph Ashton and Kris Saha.
A second WID-led team joins NIH’s Somatic Cell Genome Editing Consortium with a grant to study new methods of delivering the CRISPR/Cas9 system to the brain.
UW researchers led by WID’s Kris Saha join the National Institutes of Health’s Somatic Cell Genome Editing Consortium with a major collaborative award.
Investigators from WID are among the recipients of the latest round of UW2020 awards.
Error rates as high as 50 percent are a problem when the goal is to correct typos in the DNA that cause genetic disease. Now, a team of researchers led by WID’s Kris Saha has made the fix less mistake-prone.
The National Science Foundation has awarded nearly $20 million to a consortium of universities to support a new engineering research center that will develop transformative tools and technologies for the consistent, scalable, and low-cost production of high-quality living therapeutic cells. Several WID investigators are collaborators on the project.
Kris Saha illuminates the inner workings of gene editing.
Kris Saha with colleagues David Beebe and Christian Capitini aim to develop improved methods for making CAR T-Cells with a two-year grant from the NSF.
Tools for Discovery is a monthly profile series that inspects the computer programs, gadgets and methods behind WID’s ideas and discoveries.
New genome editing technique can target single letters of DNA sequence.
Kris Saha and colleagues from the BIONATES Theme detail a new approach that can refine gene editing in this month’s issue of Stem Cell Reports.
Kris Saha, Assistant Professor in the BIONATES theme, is featured in a Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News article for his work with High Content Analysis.
