Ethan Tietze is a Research Associate working in the lab of Jennifer Erwin. He received his M.S. in Biomedical Engineering with a focus in Regenerative Medicine from California Polytechnic State University. Ethan’s past research at the Salk Institute focused on the impact of somatic mosaicism in the brain, specifically investigating the consequences of LINE-1 retrotransposition. At the Lieber Institute, he is working to model human placental development using induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells. Ethan is particularly interested in understanding how environmental factors influence healthy prenatal development and contribute to lifetime risk of disease.
