Samantha A. Morris, PhD, an assistant professor of developmental biology and of genetics, and Benjamin D. Humphreys, MD, PhD, the Joseph Friedman Associate Professor of Renal Diseases in Medicine, each have received one year of support to conduct what is called single-cell RNA sequencing with a focus on cells in the kidney, liver and small intestine. Work in their labs will map out the relationships between and plumb the biological depths of every one of the millions of individual cells that make up each of those organs.
