Aditi worked in the laboratory from 2015-2017 as a research associate.
A key research contribution during this period was applying CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing techniques to model a genetic variant at the 6p24 CAD/MI locus in induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). Through endothelial cell (EC) and vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMC) differentiations, Aditi studied the effects of this variant on neighboring genes and stem cell-derived vascular cells. This work has been recently featured in Cell [DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.cell.2017.06.049]
Aditi is currently working in the Stanley Center for Psychiatric Research at the Broad Institute.
