Dr. Charney is a developmental and stem cell biologist currently working as a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of California Riverside. Dr. Charney’s research focuses on the formation of cell types during early development and how changes in these processes can lead to birth defects. Her work makes use of human pluripotent stem cells to understand the formation and differentiation of neural crest cells – an embryonic stem cell population that contributes to a wide range of cell types throughout the human body. Dr. Charney received her Ph.D. from the University of California Irvine in 2016. She is the recipient of multiple early career awards from the National Institutes of Health, including a Ruth L. Kirschstein Individual Postdoctoral National Research Service Award and a Pathway to Independence Award, and was the recipient of a 2015 K.
