Dr. Baldwin is an Associate Professor of Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience at the Scripps Research Institute, an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Neuroscience at UCSD and a member of the Sanford Consortium for Regenerative Medicine. Dr. Baldwin’s research is interests lie at the intersection of molecular neurobiology, genomics and stem cell biology. Her laboratory has used reprogramming by somatic cell nuclear transfer and direct reprograming to generate entire mice from iPSCs, to produce cloned mice derived from neurons and to explore the impact of somatic mutations on IPSCs and on neuronal diversity. She also uses reprogramming to explore human neuronal diversity and to probe the cellular consequence of human genetic risk for ageing associated diseases. Dr. Baldwin received a B.S. in Economics and Zoology from Duke University, a Ph.D. in Immunology at Stanford University and trained in neurobiology with Dr. Richard Axel at Columbia University. She has been named Pew Scholar in Biomedical Research, a Donald E. and Delia B. Baxter Foundation Faculty Scholar and a Kavli Fellow.
