Understanding how fibroblasts determine their functions and lineages.

Welcome to a seminar with Ryan Driskell, Washington State University

Title: “Understanding how fibroblasts determine their functions and lineages
Time: Friday June 2nd at 2pm
Place: Peter Reichard lecture hall, entrance floor in Biomedicum, Karolinska Institutet, Solna
Speaker: Assistant Professor Ryan Driskell, School of Molecular Biosciences, Washington State University
Host: Maria Kasper (CMB)

Dr. Driskell has made ground-breaking contributions to our knowledge in skin and fibroblast biology. After being trained as a Cell and Developmental Biologists (John Engelhardt lab, Iowa), he established a functional fibroblast lineage hierarchy in skin development and wound repair (Fiona Watt lab, London) and is now heading the Fibroblast and Skin Regeneration Laboratory at the Washington State University. The Driskell lab utilizes novel animal models in conjunction with molecular, computational, and histological techniques to create an understanding for achieving human skin regeneration (https://labs.wsu.edu/driskell/ and https://skinregeneration.org/).
