Congratulations to Dr. Samantha Morris!

Samantha A. Morris, PhD, an Assistant Professor of Developmental Biology and Genetics, has received one year of support to conduct single-cell RNA sequencing with a focus on cells in the small intestine. Work in her lab will map out the relationships between and plumb the biological depths of every one of the millions of individual cells that make up this organ.
