Leading Researcher in Skeletal Tissue Engineering and Regeneration to Speak at the MaxCyte Lunch Briefing at the Phacilitate Cell and Gene Therapy For

GAITHERSBURG, MD | Posted on January 18th, 2007

Dr. Gazit's presentation entitled "Genetically Engineered Stem Cells as a Platform for Skeletal Tissue Engineering" will discuss how genetically engineered mesenchymal stem cells are able to regenerate bone, cartilage, tendon, ligaments and intervertebral disk and how non-viral gene delivery works efficiently for mesenchymal stem cells.

Dr. Gazit is Professor and Head of the Skeletal Biotech Laboratory, Director of the Hebrew University Center for Converging Sciences & Technologies, Hebrew University, Jerusalem, Israel, and Director of Stem Cell Therapeutics Research Lab, Department of Surgery and International Stem cell Institute, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, CA. He received his academic training at the Hebrew University (DMD in Dental Medicine and PhD in bone biology) and joined the faculty of Dental Medicine in 1981 as a specialist in oral pathology. After a postdoctoral training in the University of California, San Francisco, he returned to the Hebrew University to become the head of the Skeletal Biotech Laboratory (1992-present), and Full Professor of Skeletal Biotechnology (2002-present). Dr. Gazit is world renowned for his work in musculoskeletal tissue engineering and orthopedic gene therapy. His scientific interests include adult stem cell biology, skeletal tissue engineering, gene therapy, non-invasive imaging, and nanotechnology. In these areas he has published
nearly 100 peer-reviewed papers and book chapters. He is especially interested in projects that bring together several scientific disciplines in order to advance stem cell-based therapeutic approaches in regenerative medicine.
