About the Speaker
Dr. Jared Churko joined the UA Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine in April 2018, following his position as an instructor within Stanford University's Cardiovascular Institute. His lab is located within the UA Sarver Heart Center where he studies cardiovascular disease. Specifically, his lab combines systems biology, stem cell biology, cardiac biology, genetic engineering, and bioinformatics to understand the mechanisms leading to heart disease. He is appointed as the director of the University of Arizona iPSC Core funded by the UA BIO5 Institute and the UA Center for Innovation in Brain Science. Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (hiPSC), can be differentiated into many cell types with potential for developing precision patient care.
