Join us for Dinner with Professor Steve Artandi, from Stanford — at Perkins Coie in Palo Alto.
Telomeres in Cancer and Tissue Regeneration
About his work:
Steve Artandi serves as a Professor of Medicine (Hematology) and Biochemistry at Stanford University. He also teaches a class on “Current Issues in Aging”. His research focuses on unraveling the molecular and cellular mechanisms according to which telomeres and telomerase modulate stem cell function and carcinogenesis.
Professor Artandi and his lab also have an interest in Telomerase Reverse Transcriptase (TERT) and Tissue Regeneration. This requires understanding how stem cells self-renew and differentiate and how TERT modulates stem cell function. One major limitation to this understanding is the inability to identify telomerase-positive cells in vivo. The Artandi lab has developed new approaches to solve this problem and are investigating telomerase-positive cells in vivo.
