Duygu Ozpolat, PhD

Assistant Professor, Biology

We study regeneration of reproductive cells in segmented worms using single cell RNAseq, transgenics, and live imaging. We also have projects in the lab that focus on cell fate decisions in the embryos via asymmetric cell division, and microbiome-host interactions in the context of regeneration.

Some former postdocs’ career outcomes:I am a relatively new PI and have only recently started working with postdocs. Until recently, my lab primarily was made of research assistants (technicians right after college, without any graduate experience). I have regularly published with my research assistants, and they have been fantastic! Currently we have 2 research assistants, and 2 postdocs at the lab.
