Transcriptional regulation of intestinal organoid differentiation

Intestinal organoid cultures recapitulate the stem cell niche in an easily accessible system. Stem cells renew the intestinal epithelium and produce all of the differentiated cells normally found in an in vivo epithelium.
In this project we are using loss of function and overexpression models to examine how EMT transcription factors regulate stem cell behaviour.
