Randolph Ashton Continues Research into Causes of Lou Gehrig’s Disease

In August 2017, Randolph Ashton received almost $800,000 from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, part of NIH, to continue a five-year research study of Lou Gehrig’s disease (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS), after successfully completing its first phase.

UW-Madison to be Partner in Center for Cell Manufacturing Technologies

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.

Sridharan Lab

The main scientific focus of the lab is in defining how the epigenome controls cell identity. We want to know how non-genetic information controls functional specialization of a cell and use this knowledge to direct efficient conversion of desired cell types with the ultimate goal of improving stem cell based therapy.
