A podcast dedicated to culturing knowledge in stem cell research.
Ep. 181: "Printing Organoids" Featuring Dr. Matthias Lutolf
Dr. Matthias Lutolf is a Professor and Principal Investigator of the Laboratory of Stem Cell Bioengineering at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne. His lab uses cutting-edge bioengineering strategies for guiding stem-cell-based development for the assembly of next-generation organoids with improved reproducibility and physiological relevance.
Ep. 180: “Next Generation Scientists”
In this special episode of the Stem Cell Podcast, we speak with three PhD students — Nathasia Mudiwa Muwanigwa, Sarthak Sinha, and Naveed Tavakol — about their research into brain organoids, organ-on-chip systems, and regeneration in different mammals.
Ep. 178: "The Human Segmentation Clock" Featuring Dr. Miki Ebisuya
Dr. Miki Ebisuya is a Group Leader at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory in Barcelona. Her lab reconstitutes developmental mechanisms by making artificial gene circuits, and studies interspecies differences by comparing organoids of different animals.
Ep. 178: "Muscle Stem Cell Quiescence" Featuring Dr. Tom Cheung
Dr. Tom Cheung is the S H Ho Associate Professor of Life Science at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. His lab investigates the molecular pathways that control muscle stem cell quiescence and stem cell-mediated tissue regeneration.
Ep. 177: “Molecular Mechanisms of Differentiation” Featuring Dr. Ludovic Vallier
Dr. Ludovic Vallier is a Professor of Regenerative Medicine at the Cambridge Stem Cell Institute and Director of the NIHR Cambridge Biomedical Centre hiPSC core facility. His lab studies the basic mechanisms controlling differentiation of pluripotent cells into endoderm progenitors from which the pancreas, lung, gut and liver originate.
Ep. 176: "Stem Cells and the Skin" Featuring Dr. Valerie Horsley
Dr. Valerie Horsley is an Associate Professor of Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology, and Associate Professor of Dermatology at Yale University. Her lab studies how adult stem cells within epithelial tissues maintain tissue homeostasis, wound healing and can contribute to cancer formation.
