AIBN Level 1 Seminar Room



Bio:  Research in the Zandstra Laboratory (
http://stemcell.ibme.utoronto.ca/about_us.html) is focused on the
generation of functional tissue from adult and pluripotent stem cells.
His groups' quantitative, bioengineering-based approach strives to gain
new insight into the fundamental mechanisms that control stem cell fate
and to develop robust technologies for the use of stem cells and their
derivatives to treat disease. Specific areas of research focus include
blood stem cell expansion and the generation of cardiac tissue and
endoderm progenitors from pluripotent stem cells. Dr. Zandstra is a
Professor in the Institute of Biomaterials and Biomedical Engineering,
the Department of Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry, and the
Donnelly Centre at the University of Toronto. He is also a member of the
McEwen Centre for Regenerative Medicine and the Heart and Stroke/Richard
Lewar Centre of Excellence. He currently acts as Chief Scientific
Officer for the Centre for the Commercialization of Regenerative
Medicine (www.CCRM.ca). Dr Zandstra's accomplishments have been
recognized by a number of awards and accolades including a Guggenheim
Fellowship and the McLean Award. Dr Zandstra's strong commitment to
training the next generation of researchers is evidenced by his role as
the Director of the undergraduate Bioengineering Program.
