Staff Profiles

Stephanie Dinh

Research Associate

​Stephanie is a Research Associate in the Stem Cell and Gene Editing group involved in the cardiomyocyte pipeline. She is responsible for implementing cardiac differentiation using the gene-edited human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) produced within the group. Stephanie's current interests focus on the differentiation process and methods of inducing cardiomyocyte maturation in culture. She was previously an undergraduate researcher in Dr. C. Dirk Keene’s neuropathology lab. There she was involved in brain autopsy and responsible for growing and characterizing patient derived leptomeningeal fibroblasts for stem cell conversion and neuron differentiation. 

Stephanie completed her Bachelor of Science in Molecular Cellular Developmental Biology at the University of Washington.
