Professional Interests:

Dr. Eisenberg investigates molecular mechanisms that control the phenotypic direction of differentiating stem cells. One group of molecules that plays an important role in regulating cell fate decisions of stem cells is the WNT family of secreted signaling proteins. WNT regulation is essential for brain, limb, kidney, mammary gland, muscle and heart development. Disregulation of these molecules has also been shown to play a major role in tumor formation. Ongoing investigations in the laboratory concern how WNT signal transduction shift cell lineage decisions among alternative cell fates, and modulate the signal transduction pathways of other growth factors in regulating lineage determination among stem cells.
