Ashley Libby is a postdoctoral researcher in the Briscoe Lab. She obtained her PhD at University of California, San Francisco as part of the Gladstone Institutes. Here, she was joint in the Conklin and McDevitt labs where she studied gastrulation patterning using induced pluripotent stem cell models, developing CRISPR based assays, machine learning classifiers, and 3D organoid systems. For her postdoctoral research, Ashley is continuing her research in tissue development focusing on the fate determination of stem cell populations in the caudal epiblast as they build the neural tube. To this end, she interrogates genetic regulation of stem cell differentiation via in vivo CRISPR techniques and live imaging to establish how the vertebrate neural tube arises from the caudal epiblast.
