GICD/CVRI Seminar

Assistant Professor, Department of Developmental Biology
Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine

Kyle Loh’s research employs stem cells to reconstitute and understand human developmental biology, with the intent to generate pure populations of desired human tissue progenitors and create a platform for stem cell–driven regenerative medicine. The Loh Lab has delineated a comprehensive roadmap that describes how embryonic stem cells can develop into a broad spectrum of different human cell types through a sequence of pairwise lineage choices. This has enabled the production of nearly pure populations of human tissue progenitors, providing new opportunities for regenerative medicine and to interrogate early human tissue development, including understanding the molecular basis of multi-lineage competence and defining stepwise molecular changes during cell-fate transitions.

The GICD/CVRI Seminar series is a collaborative series between the Gladstone Institute of Cardiovascular Disease and the Cardiovascular Research Institute at UC San Francisco.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

At Gladstone, we are committed to providing events and professional development activities that resonate with our community’s diverse members. Our goal is to develop creative programming that encompasses a wide variety of ideas and perspectives to inspire, educate, and engage with everyone within our walls.

We want to effect positive change through our events and activities by providing a platform for discussions on important topics related to increasing diversity and inclusiveness in the sciences.
