Class Info

Study of the amitotic metakaryotic stem cells in fetal/juvenile organogenesis and wound healing. Explores their roles as stem cells in clonal diseases such as cancers and atherosclerosis. Application of a hypermutable/mutator stem cell model to the analysis of age-specific mortality from clonal diseases. Students taking 20.215 do additional research and computer modeling.
