Current Members

Soma Ray, Ph.D.
Senior Scientist: 2007-present

Soma's research is focused on understanding transcriptional regulation of key endothelial genes during endothelial lineage specification and angiogenesis. She is also involved in research related to GATA2 function and regulation during trophoblast cell differentiation.

S Ray

Pratik Home, Ph.D.
Postdoctoral fellow: 2008-present

Pratik is an American Heart Association Postdoctoral Fellow. He is working to understand regulation and function of GATA factors in the trophectoderm and in trophoblast cell lineages.

P Home
