Marius Wernig, MD, PhD
Marius Wernig’s lab is interested in pluripotent stem cell biology and the molecular determinants of neural cell fate decisions. His lab was the first to generate functional neuronal cells reprogrammed directly from skin fibroblasts, which he termed induced neuronal (iN) cells. The lab is now working on identifying the molecular mechanisms underlying induced lineage fate changes, the phenotypic consequences of disease-causing mutations in human neurons and other neural lineages as well as the development of novel therapeutic gene targeting and cell transplantation–based strategies for a variety of monogenetic diseases.

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.
