Seminar by Dr April Craft "Transcriptomic and Epigenetic Signatures of Developing Human Cartilage Lineages"

This seminar is virtual

April Craft received her Ph.D. from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine in a gene therapy/functional genomics lab. Her postdoctoral training was with stem cell biologist Dr. Gordon Keller at the McEwen Centre for Regenerative Medicine in Toronto. There, Dr. Craft initiated a successful cartilage research program, which she brought with her to Boston Children’s Hospital in 2015. Dr. Craft is currently an Assistant Professor in the departments of Orthopaedic Surgery and Stem Cells & Regenerative Biology at Harvard University, and she leads the Musculoskeletal Disease Program at the Harvard Stem Cell Institute. Her lab continues to study the development of cartilage and other synovial joint tissues, with hopes of applying this knowledge toward the development of therapeutics for disease attenuation and tissue regeneration and repair.
