Meng-Chieh Shen

Maggie was the research technician/ lab manager in the lab from 2006 to 2014. Her research focussed on making useful transgenic zebrafish. These transgenic fish are used to report or conditionally regulate gene expression of the shh pathway. Zebrafish have a relatively short lifespan. It takes only 3 months for them to mature.  Larvae are small and transparent. All these reasons make them perfect for making transgenic animals. She also worked on understanding how shh and other signal pathways regulate embryonic pituitary development.

She has a B.S. from China Medical University, Taiwan,  and M.S .from University of Arizona. Maggie is currently a technician at the Carnegie Institute of Science in Baltimore, MD.
