Todd McDevitt’s research focuses on engineering technologies to direct the differentiation and organization of stem cells to create functional tissues. His team is creating models of human tissues that can be used to study embryonic development and develop new approaches to treat diseases that afflict the cardiovascular, neurological, and immunological systems. McDevitt’s group was the first to show they could create a new type of spinal cord neuron from human pluripotent stem cells that might be useful to treat spinal cord injuries. They are now examining the therapeutic potential of these cells in animal models and developing novel organoid models of the central nervous system.
Areas of Expertise
Human tissue constructs and organoids derived from stem cells offer novel model systems for probing mechanisms of embryonic development. In addition, engineered human microtissues provide valuable biological substrates to interrogate infectious and genetic diseases and the effects of exposure to other environmental factors.
McDevitt’s lab uses a bottom-up approach to understand how cells cooperatively interact to form complex tissues and dictate multicellular organization and subsequent physiologic function. They have developed systems to achieve spatiotemporal control of morphogen presentation from biomaterials incorporated within 3D environments of stem cell aggregates, and established 3D computational models of stem cell differentiation and morphogenesis. More recently, they have also used CRISPR-based technologies to engineer multicellular organization of stem cells in a self-directed manner. The group has a long-standing interest in harnessing the potency of molecules produced by pluripotent stem cells in different manners for regenerative and rejuvenative applications.
Senior Investigator, Gladstone Institutes
Professor of Bioengineering and Therapeutic Sciences, UC San Francisco
Program Director, Graduate Program in Bioengineering, UC San Francisco and UC Berkeley
Todd C. McDevitt is a senior investigator at Gladstone Institutes. He is also a professor of bioengineering and therapeutic sciences at UC San Francisco, as well as the program director for the joint Graduate Program in Bioengineering at UC San Francisco and UC Berkeley.
McDevitt graduated with a bachelor’s degree in biomedical and electrical engineering from Duke University. He earned a PhD in bioengineering from the University of Washington, where he worked on methods to engineer cardiac and skeletal muscle tissue. He then completed a postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Pathology at the University of Washington, in which he studied signaling pathways that affect the proliferation of cardiomyocytes derived from pluripotent stem cells. He has received several awards, including a New Investigator Award from the American Heart Association, and a Young Investigator Award from the Society for Biomaterials, and was inducted into the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering College of Fellows in 2014.
McDevitt’s lab integrates fundamental principles of cell and tissue engineering, biomaterials, and systems approaches with stem cell and development biology expertise to determine how to create functional models of human tissues for regenerative medicine therapies and enable new biological discoveries. Their long-term goal is to create robust models of complex human biological systems that can faithfully recapitulate dynamic morphogenic processes and facilitate the translation of biomedical therapies for congenital, degenerative, and infectious human diseases.
