Ya-Chieh Hsu, PhD
Harvard Stem Cell Institute
Ya-Chieh Hsu is the Alvin and Esta Star Associate Professor of Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology at Harvard University, and a Principal Faculty Member at the Harvard Stem Cell Institute. She is supported by a K99-R00 pathway to independence award from NIH, and is a past recipient of the Starr Stem Cell Foundation Fellowship and the NYSCF-Druckenmiller Fellowship.
Dr. Hsu completed her Ph.D. at Baylor College of Medicine, where she studied pathways controlling growth and proliferation using Drosophila as a model. For her postdoctoral research at the Rockefeller University, she delineated the lineage hierarchy of hair follicle cells and investigated how signals from stem cell progeny regulate hair follicle stem cells in Elaine Fuchs’ laboratory.
