Scott Atwood, PhD, University of California, Irvine
Scott received his Ph.D. in Molecular Biology from University of Oregon where he studied how cell polarity influenced cell fate in fly neural stem cells. He continued his training at Stanford University where he investigated basal cell carcinoma and the evolution of drug resistance. He is currently exploring cell fate decisions in skin stem cells and cancer.
