Poster 85: Ella Gregory – Investigating the role of transcription factor Ptf1a in maintaining differentiated acinar cells

<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Diane Hernandez

I will be investigating the protective role Ptf1a has in preventing precancerous lesions from developing in the pancreas. I will be doing this through a series of experiments in different mouse models. My role in each experiment will begin by preparing the tissue for imaging in a series of washes, sectioning and staining. I will then analyze the slides in order to quantify lesions found in the tissue, and finally graph and examine the results.
