Lindsey Seldin, PhD, is Assistant Professor in the Department of Cell Biology with a joint appointment in the Department of Dermatology at Emory University School of Medicine. Dr. Seldin is a member of the Cell and Molecular Biology Research Program at Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University.


Dr. Seldin earned her PhD in Cell Biology from Duke University in in Durham, North Carolina. She completed her postdoctoral research on epithelial stem cell plasticity at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee.


The Seldin Lab seeks to understand mechanisms that regulate epithelial stem cell fate during development, homeostasis, and tumorigenesis in the mammalian epidermis and its sub-appendages (including the hair follicle and mammary gland). To investigate these mechanisms at the tissue, cell and molecular levels, we apply in vivo (mouse transgenics, lineage-tracing), ex vivo (3D organotypic culture), imaging (intravital, live, confocal) and RNA sequencing technologies. The broader goal of our research is to inform the development of effective, targeted approaches for regenerative medicine and the treatment of epidermal disease.
