Most influential women in Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research

Most influential women in Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research

March 8th 2021 – Today we commemorate a day which recognizes and empowers Women through history, also it’s a continuous reminder of seeking for gender parity. On this day, typically Women all around the world gather around and raise their voice for awareness, for Women’s freedom and for their rights as human beings. Today we would like to honor those who have contributed to Stem Cell Science:

    1. Christine L. Mummery: is an appointed professor of Developmental Biology at Leiden University and the head of the Department of Anatomy and Embryology at Leiden University Medical Center in the Netherland. She has pioneered studies on cardiomyocytes which are cardiac muscle cells from human embryonic stem cells and was among the first to inject them in a mouse heart after myocardial infarction. Mummery was the first to derive human-induced pluripotent stem cells in Netherlands and is internationally leading in their use for cardiovascular disease modelling and safety pharmacology.
    2.  Fiona Watt: is a Professor of Regenerative Medicine. Her main research interests are in the role of stem cells in adult tissue maintenance and how the differentiated state of adult tissues is maintained. Professor Watt was awarded as a Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences in 2000 and the Royal Society in 2003, She is currently director of the Center for Stem Cells & Regenerative Medicine at King’s College London, and Executive Chair of the Medical Research Council, she is the first woman to lead the MRC since its foundation in 1913.
    3. Janet Rossant: is a developmental biologist well known for her contributions to the understanding of the role of genes in embryo development. Her current research interests focus on stem cells, molecular genetics, and developmental biology.Specifically, she uses cellular and genetic manipulation techniques to study how genes control both normal and abnormal development of early mouse embryos. Rossant has discovered information on embryo development, how multiple types of stem cells are established, and the mechanisms by which genes control development
    4. Kathrin Plath: is a Professor of Biological Chemistry at the UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine. Born in Germany, she received her master’s degree in Biochemistry at the Humboldt University in Berlin. Dr. Plath joined the UCLA faculty in 2006. Her lab integrates cell biological, molecular, biochemical, and genomics approaches to study epigenetic mechanisms underlying pluripotency, differentiation and reprogramming, with a particular emphasis on how transcription factors reprogram cell fates; how long-noncoding RNAs modulate gene expression and chromatin states; and how the genome is folded in three dimensions to fulfill its functions. Dr. Plath is on the editorial board of Cell, Cell Stem Cell, Elife, and various other journals. She also serves as Director of the International Society for Stem Cell Research, and has received NIH’s New Innovator Award.
    5. Valentina Greco: born in Palermo, Italy. biologist who teaches at the Yale School of Medicine as the Carolyn Walch Slayman Professor of Genetics and is an Associate Professor in the Cell Biology and Dermatology departments. Her research focuses on the role of skin stem cells in tissue regeneration. The Greco lab currently studies stem cells in organ regeneration, with the goal of determining how cells are maintained despite mutation, cellular turnover, and injury.

Stem Cell Therapy is still a really new science but thanks to them we are able to know more about this research. If you have any questions or would like to learn more about the Stem Cell Therapy and medical tourism in Tijuana you can contact us at info@progencell.com or call 1 (888) 443 6235
