Kailin Mesa - Postdoctoral Associate, NYU, USA

Kai was a PhD student in the Greco Lab from 2013 to 2017 and focused his efforts on understanding the interplay between the hair follicle and surrounding tissues during tissue growth and regression and the spatiotemporal coordination of stem cell commitment during epidermal homeostasis.

Peggy Myung - Assistant Professor, Yale, USA 

Peggy was a Dermatopath Fellow in the Greco lab from 2012 to 2016 and interrogated how Wnt/b-catenin regulates stem cells and the growth process in the hair follicle. She discovered, in collaboration with Elizabeth Deschene, that beta-catenin acts non-cell-autonomously to fuel tissue growth. 

Thomas Sun - MD Internal Medicine, Stanford, USA

Thomas was a MD student at Yale while in the Greco lab from 2013 to 2016 and worked with Peggy to interrogated how Wnt/b-catenin regulates stem cells and the growth process in the hair follicle, as well as, explored the tumor environment in basal cell carcinomas.

Pantelis Rompolas - Assistant Professor, UPenn, USA

Pantelis was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Greco lab from 2011 to 2015 and established our current approach to utilize intravital microscopy to study the behavior of stem cells in vivo. He discovered how spatial organization within a niche can act as a determinant of stem cell fate and demonstrated, in collaboration with Kai Mesa, that epidermal stem cells have equal potential to either divide or directly differentiate.

Enrico Ferro - MD Candidate 2018, Harvard, USA

Enrico was an undergraduate student at Yale while in the Greco lab from 2013 to 2014 and worked with Gianni to investigate how skin tumors can regress and what role stem cells and their signaling play in this process.

Giovanni Zito - Group Leader, Mediterranean Center for Human Health Advanced Biotechnologies, Palermo, Italy

Gianni was a Postdoctoral Associate in the Greco lab from 2010 to 2014 and investigated how skin tumors can regress and what role stem cells and their signaling play in this process. He discovered, how spontaneous tumor regression in keratoacanthomas is driven by Wnt /Retinoic Acid signaling cross-talk.

Markus Wolfel - Research Engineer, MAG and More, Germany

Markus worked as a Postdoctoral Associate in the Greco lab from 2013 to 2014 as an engineer and technology expert who helped to develop new technologies based on multiphoton microscopy.

Elizabeth Deschene Jacox - Postdoctoral Associate, Yale, USA

Elizabeth was a PhD student in the Greco Lab from 2010 to 2014 and focused her efforts on understanding stem cell activation within the hair follicle. She discovered, in collaboration with Peggy Myung, that beta-catenin acts non-cell-autonomously to fuel tissue growth.
