Kristy Red-Horse is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biology. The Red-Horse Lab uses cardiovascular development as a model to study the signals that instruct cell fate and guide morphogenesis during organ formation in the mammalian embryo. Their current focus is to fate-map the different cellular sources that give rise to the coronary arteries of the heart and to identify the molecules that direct their migration and differentiation. Their long-term goal is to use this information to better understand and treat cardiovascular diseases. Red-Horse is the recipient of a Searle Scholar Award, a Terman Fellowship, and a NYSCF Innovator Award.
