Nina Kosaric

I first became interested in stem cell biology at Harvard, where I majored in Human Developmental and Regenerative Biology. I worked in Stephen Haggarty’s lab at Massachusetts General Hospital, where I used human cell-derived neurons to investigate the role of the Wnt signaling pathway in neuropsychiatric disorders, such as schizophrenia. At Stanford, I hope to take advantage of the ability of induced pluripotent stem cells to model diseases in a genetically-relevant context to uncover disease mechanisms that can ultimately lead to new therapies. When I’m not in lab, I like to explore local shops and restaurants, as well as stay active by running and playing sports.
