Samantha Morris, Ph.D. is an Assistant Professor of Genetics and Developmental Biology at Washington University in St. Louis. She established her research group in 2015, focusing on developing new single-cell experimental and computational approaches to dissect mechanisms of cell fate reprogramming. Sam trained at the University of Cambridge with Magdalena Zernicka-Goetz, investigating early mammalian fate specification. She then joined the laboratory of George Daley at Harvard Medical School, where she focused on the analysis of gene regulatory networks to dissect and engineer cell identity. Together with her group, she continues in pursuit of her goal to engineer clinically relevant cell populations, translating new insights in cell fate specification into better models of disease and development.
