Professor Nadia Rosenthal

 - Affiliate Investigator

Research focus: Using mammalian genetics to explore the embryonic development of heart and skeletal muscle and the regeneration of adult tissues.

Professor Nadia Rosenthal is the Scientific Director of the Jackson Laboratory. 

Professor Rosenthal’s research uses mammalian genetics to explore the embryonic development of heart and skeletal muscle and the regeneration of adult tissues. She focuses on muscle and cardiac developmental genetics and the role of growth factors, stem cells and the immune system in tissue regeneration.

She is a global leader in the use of targeted mutagenesis in mice to investigate muscle development, disease and repair, and is a participant in EUCOMM, the European Conditional Mouse Mutagenesis Program, where she coordinates the selection and production of new Cre driver strains for the international mouse genetics community.
