Professor Andrew Elefanty
Blood Cell Development and Disease, Murdoch Childrens Research Institute
“Stem cells: who needs them, anyway?”

The last 20 years has seen a revolution in biology – in part catalyzed by the ability to grow stem cells in the laboratory that could form every type of tissue. The opportunities that this has presented to study human development and disease, and the potential for new replacement therapies, has spawned new fields of personalized and regenerative medicine. In this talk, we will review the development of stem cell biology and see where we currently stand in realizing some of its promises.

Professor Andrew Elefanty trained as a physician and completed a PhD in leukemogenesis at The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute, then worked on globin gene regulation at the National Institute for Medical Research in London, before returning to the Australia. His work has focused on human pluripotent stem cell differentiation. His laboratory has generated genetically modified human stem cell lines in which lineage-specific fluorescent reporters allow monitoring of differentiation.
