    • Creating Critical Consumers of Health and Science News: Teaching Science to the Non-Scientist Using Newsworthy Topics in the Life Sciences† 

      Coderre, Raymond W.; Uekermann, Kristen A.; Choi, Youngeun; Anderson, William J. (American Society of Microbiology, 2016)
      Scientists constantly make groundbreaking discoveries, some of which receive attention from the press. We designed a course intended for a lay audience that provides the scientific background to appreciate these reports ...
    • Genetic Targeting of the Endoderm with Claudin-6CreER 

      Anderson, William J.; Zhou, Qiao; Alcalde, Victor; Kaneko, Osamu F; Blank, Leah J; Sherwood, Richard Irving; Guseh, James Sawalla; Rajagopal, Jayaraj; Melton, Douglas A. (Wiley-Blackwell, 2008)
      A full description of the ontogeny of the β cell would guide efforts to generate β cells from embryonic stem cells (ESCs). The first step requires an understanding of definitive endoderm: the genes and signals responsible ...
    • A Multipotent Progenitor Domain Guides Pancreatic Organogenesis 

      Zhou, Qiao; Law, Anica Chi-Ying; Rajagopal, Jayaraj; Anderson, William J.; Gray, Paul A.; Melton, Douglas A. (Elsevier BV, 2007)
      The mammalian pancreas is constructed during embryogenesis by multipotent progenitors, the identity and function of which remain poorly understood. We performed genome-wide transcription factor expression analysis of the ...
    • Notch signaling promotes airway mucous metaplasia and inhibits alveolar development 

      Guseh, James Sawalla; Bores, S. A.; Stanger, B. Z.; Zhou, Qiao; Anderson, William J.; Melton, Douglas A.; Rajagopal, Jayaraj (The Company of Biologists, 2009)
      The airways are conduits that transport atmospheric oxygen to the distal alveolus. Normally, airway mucous cells are rare. However, diseases of the airway are often characterized by mucous metaplasia, in which there are ...
