Our speaker Dr. Clive Svendsen did his predoctoral training at Harvard University. He received his PhD from the University of Cambridge in England, where he subsequently became a Welcome Fellow and established a laboratory focusing on stem cell research. He then moved to the University of Wisconsin in 2000 as Professor of Neurology and Anatomy and founded their Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Center.
In 2010, he moved to Los Angeles and founded the Cedars-Sinai Board of Governors Regenerative Medicine Institute (RMI), which currently has 23 faculty members and over 120 staff. A main focus of the Institute is to both model and treat various human diseases with the use of induced pluripotent stem cells (or iPSCs), which are adult human cells taken back in time to a young stem cell state capable of making any tissue of the human body.
We look forward to seeing you at the event!
