Conor Sipe, a Postdoctoral Fellow in Assistant Professor Sarah Siegrist’s lab, has published an article entitled, “Eyeless uncouples mushroom body neuroblast proliferation from dietary amino acids in Drosphila” in the eLife sciences journal.
Sipe describes his research by saying, “Precise control of stem cell proliferation is critical for both development and function of adult tissues. My project seeks to understand how cell-intrinsic mechanisms couple stem cell proliferation with nutrient availability, using Drosophila neural stem cells as a model.”
