Curtis Thorne, PhD, and colleagues published a new study in Developmental Cell describing a simple, scalable method to culture 2D enteroid monolayers that, surprisingly, recapitulates many of the features of in vivo intestinal tissue and can be used for high-throughput microscopy-based experiments. Using this system, they systematically perturb WNT and BMP signals to reveal a core morphogenic circuit that controls proliferation, tissue organization, and cell fate or the intestine.

In a recent study led by UA Assistant Professor Casey Romanoski, PhD, the research team used genome-wide epigenetics to identify major drivers of human artery endothelial cell responses to inflammatory environments. They utilized endothelial genome sequences called enhancers to pinpoint DNA variation in humans that may underpin differential susceptibility to coronary artery disease.
