Ahmed published in Cell Reports

UNC Lineberger's Shawn Ahmed, PhD, was senior author of a study that published in Cell Reports on April 3. Ahmed, former UNC Lineberger postdoctoral fellow Bree Heestand and colleagues demonstrate in the study "Transgenerational sterility of Piwi mutants represents a dynamic form of Adult Reproductive Diapause" that reproductive arrest in adults can also occur in response to a form of "heritable stress" that is transmitted by germ cells, which likely represents a form of epigenomic damage.
