Tiffany Barszczewski, M.S.

Research Associate II

Bio:

Tiffany is a Research Associate II on the Stem Cell Culture and Differentiation team where she uses a diverse set of techniques to maintain and differentiate various CRISPR/Cas9-edited, fluorescently tagged human induced pluripotent stem cell (hiPSC) lines for downstream assays that help elucidate cell organization, cell behavior, and cell identity. She completed her B.S. with Honors in Biomedical Physiology at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada. Her M.S. thesis work in the Tibbits Lab at the Cellular and Regenerative Medicine Centre (CRMC; BC Children's Hospital Research Institute), focused on using CRISPR-based gene editing to study inherited arrhythmias and cardiomyopathies in hiPSC-derived cardiomyocytes in vitro and developing image-based assays to assess changes in contractility and morphology in edited lines.
