Christy has joined the lab as a graduate student (Human and Statistical Genetics). Christy received her degree from the University of Missouri – St. Louis in 2016. After graduation, she worked as a research assistant at Washington University in St. Louis, where she studied the diverse transcriptional profiles of skeletal muscle in the lab of Dr. Michael Hughes. In the Morris Lab, she will use gene regulatory networks, machine learning, and live cell imaging to elucidate mechanisms driving cell fate during reprogramming. She is a member of the Human and Statistical Genetics program.
