A team led by UW Bioengineering professor Dr. Charles Murry (joint professor in Pathology and Cardiology) has discovered a new regulator for heart formation by studying how embryonic stem cells adjust the packaging of their DNA. This discovery may lead to a better understanding of the causes of heart disease as well as further insight into how other organs develop. The team’s findings are published in the September 28, 2012 issue of Cell.
