Dr. Gareth Sullivan has been hired as new group leader in the area of human pluripotent stem cell biology. Sullivan, who at the time of hiring had been working at the MRC Center of Regenerative Medicine, University of Edinburgh, brings to the Center very strong expertise in human embryonic and induced pluripotent stem cells. With a research plan focused on endoderm differentiation and the development of novel methodologies for reprogramming somatic cells, and with past experience in both academic and biotech industry sectors, Sullivan greatly strengthens the Center's capabilities in this dynamic and innovative research area. Of particular importance is Sullivan's commitment to develop cell-based drug testing platforms and to build translational bridges to the clinic. The Center extends a warm welcome to Gareth and looks forward to a highly fruitful and collaborative interaction in the coming years.
