Ben Dulken

I am an MD/PhD student in the Stanford’s Medical Scientist Training Program. I started doing research as an undergraduate student at the University of Washington in the lab of Matt Kaeberlein studying the metabolic regulation of aging in C. elegans. I later worked in Professor Suzie Pun's lab investigating drug delivery vehicles for chemotherapeutics. Since coming to Stanford two years ago, I have become interested in neural stem cells, particularly how they are regulated and how their function is degraded or changed with age. As a member of Anne Brunet's lab, I use FACS sorting techniques to isolate neural stem cells and study their function using novel genomic approaches. During my free time, I like to spend time outdoors, rock climbing, skiing, biking, or running.
