Dr Franchesca Houghton

Embryonic stem cells

Research in Franchesca's group is focussed on understanding fundamental mechanisms which regulate a range of human stem cell populations including embryonic, kidney and cardiac progenitor cells. A particular area of interest is in the hypoxic regulation of stem cell maintenance. In addition, Franchesca's lab is also investigating the metabolism and cell signalling of the mammalian preimplantation embryo.

Projects currently ongoing in the lab include:
