Theodore Rasmussen's Biography

Theodore Rasmussen, Associate Professor, University of Connecticut

Dr. Rasmussen is an Associate Professor in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Connecticut, and a member of the U. Conn. Stem Cell Institute. Dr. Rasmussen earned a B.S. degree in at the University of Washington, a Ph.D. the University of Wisconsin in genetics, and completed postdoctoral research at MIT, working on X chromosome inactivation in stem cells. In 2002, Rasmussen founded a stem cell and epigenetics lab at the University of Connecticut. His research is currently focused on stem cell chromatin, reprogramming, and the use of ES cells and iPS cells to model human genetic disorders and mechanisms of toxicology. Rasmussen also studies chromatin dynamics during preimplantation development, cellular reprogramming, and X chromosome inactivation.

Embryonic stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells can differentiate into most if not all cells found in the adult body plan. The composition of chromatin in pluripotent cells is developmentally potentiated and plastic. This presentation includes research focused on chromatin and epigenetics in pluripotent cells, to include X chromosome inactivation and unique features of cell cycle regulation, chromosomal stability, and checkpoint control in pluripotent cells.
