Dr. Kumar did her graduate work in the lab of Doug Melton at Harvard University where she studied the mechanisms used by vertebrate embryos to regionalize the endoderm into domains that give rise to individual organs. As a postdoctoral fellow in the lab of Mark Krasnow at Stanford she has used a combination of clonal analysis, transplantation, microfluidic cell culture and genetic analysis to carry out a comprehensive study of progenitor cell behavior and lineage relationships in the developing lung mesenchyme, uncovering distinct progenitor populations and distinct modes of recruitment to multiple stromal lineages.
