My laboratory seeks to understand the basic biology of a novel population of cardiovascular progenitor cells (CPC) derived from heart tissues and embryonic stem (ES) and induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells. These CPC are capable of making nearly an entire heart during heart formation and are marked by Isl1, a LIM-Homeo domain transcription factor. Using a high-throughput small molecule screen coupled with murine ES cell and embryonic heart developmental studies, we have discovered several small molecules modulating these CPC.
