About me

  • Qiaolin Deng has obtained her professional training in the fields of
    developmental neurobiology, stem cell biology and single-cell technology to
    understand the molecular mechanisms in cell fate specification and
    transcriptional regulation during embryonic development. Her lab is
    established in 2015 funded by Young Investigator grants from several funding
    agencies including the Swedish Society for Medical Research, Swedish Medical
    Research Council, and Karolinska Institutet Faculty Fund.

  • My lab is interested in understanding the developmental principles of the
    germline in health and disease. Moreover, we focus on how the parental
    effects are transmitted via developmental programming and germline moderation
    to future offspring, a process known as epigenetic inheritance.
    High-throughput sequencing, stem cell differentiation modeling, 3D organoid
    culture, and transgenic mouse models are our frequently used tools among
