Panel 2: Kristin Baldwin

Stem Cells in Development and Disease

October 31, 2012
Kristin Baldwin


Kristin Baldwin is an associate professor of cell biology and an investigator of the Dorris Neuroscience Institute at the Scripps Research Institute. The Baldwin laboratory is interested in basic mechanisms of reprogramming, epigenetic remodeling, genome stability and molecular diversity in stem cells and neurons. Research in the lab aims to apply these findings to develop improved models of human neurologic diseases. Members of the Baldwin lab generated first mice derived entirely from a fibroblast (via an iPSC intermediate), helping to establish iPSCs cells as functionally similar to ES cells. Dr. Baldwin was a Pew Scholar in the Biological Sciences, a Donald E. and Delia B. Baxter Foundation Faculty Scholar, a Kavli Fellow and has received grant support from the California Institute of Regenerative Medicine (CIRM), the NIH, the Whitehall Foundation, the San Diego Foundation and the O’Keeffe Family Foundation. She received her Ph.D. from Stanford University.
