Overcoming challenges for stem cell differentiation to islets

Thursday October 21, 2021 - 13:50 to 14:20

Room: TBD

Nathaniel Hogrebe, United States

Postdoctoral Fellow
Division of Endocrinology, Metabolism & Lipid Research
Washington University in St Louis School of Medicine


Nathaniel grew up in St. Louis, MO. He moved to Ohio to continue his education, earning his bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Dayton with minors in Biology and Bioengineering. He then completed his PhD in Biomedical Engineering at The Ohio State University in 2016 under the guidance of Dr. Keith Gooch. His doctoral research focused on the importance of insoluble cues from the cellular microenvironment on particular cell behaviors, such as human mesenchymal stem cell differentiation. He joined the Millman Lab in the fall of 2016 with the hopes of using these skills to help improve the differentiation of stem cell-derived β-cells and assist in the tissue engineering of pancreatic islets.
