Kristy Red-Horse
Kristy Red-Horse is an Associate Professor in the Department of Biology at Stanford University. Dr. Red-Horse's laboratory uses cardiovascular development as a model to study the signals that instruct cell fate and guide morphogenesis during organ formation in the mammalian embryo. The current focus of the lab is to fate-map the different cellular sources that
