The IMB welcomes you to the fourth series of 'Meet the Researcher' with Dr Emma Gordon and Dr Nathan Palpant.

Dr Gordon will provide an insight into her research on the formation and maintenance of the blood and lymphatic vascular systems, with a specific focus determining the precise molecular signals that control cell adhesion within the vessel wall’s surrounding environment.

Dr Palpant will enlighten you with his in-depth study on exactly how human stem cells can be turned into heart cells. Dr Palpant and his team’s work involves measuring changes in gene activity in individual cells as they move through the stages of heart development.
