Paul Krebsbach, DDS, PhD, University of Michigan
Pluripotent stem cells: Opening another avenue for craniofacial regeneration
Paul Krebsbach, D.D.S., Ph.D, is the Roy H. Roberts professor of dentistry and professor of biomedical engineering, and chair of the Department of Biologic and Materials Sciences in the School of Dentistry at the University of Michigan. He received a Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) degree from the University of Minnesota, and a certificate in periodontology and Ph.D. in biomedical sciences from the University of Connecticut Health Center. Prior to joining the faculty at the University of Michigan, he was a senior staff fellow for three years at the National Institute of Dental and Crainiofacial Research. His research program focuses on the cell and molecular biology of mineralized tissues with an emphasis on gene therapy-directed osteogenesis and the lineage progression of adult and pluripotent stem cells.
Every semester, the SCEC welcomes keynote speakers to the Georgia Tech stem cell research community to speak on behalf of their university, institution, industry, or research lab in regards to stem cell engineering. This experience is meant to broaden the stem cell research alliance between local researchers and worldwide experts for the purposes of communicating stem cell advancements across the globe while developing future collaborative opportunities. The SCEC seminar series speakers range from international stem cell academia to industry professionals and research scientists.
