What do different populations of cells do?

“I am the principal investigator for a relatively new lab at the University of Pittsburgh that uses genetic tools in mice to identify novel populations of cells and figures out what they do. Prior to our FFS support, there was no funding for this research. We anticipate that FFS’s support will allow us to garner additional data, leading to publication in peer-reviewed journals which will, ultimately, help us to secure further funding from other sources.”
