In vivo physiology of kidney development detected with genetically encoded biosensors

March 12 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

| Free

Speaker: Iain Drummond,  Ph.D. Professor and Director, Davis Center for Aging and Regeneration. MDI Biological Laboratory.

About the speaker:  Dr. Drummond studies kidney organogenesis, genetic disease, and regeneration using the zebrafish as a model system. His lab  uses in vivo imaging and targeted gene mutations to identify new human disease genes,  reveal kidney morphogenetic processes, and to characterize kidney stem cell and growth factor interactions that drive kidney regeneration. Iain Drummond received his PhD from the University of California Berkeley in cell signaling and the heat shock response. His postdoctoral work with Rex Chisholm at Northwestern University Medical School and Vikas Sukhatme at University of Chicago lead to his interest in studying kidney organogenesis. From 1993 to 2018 he was a faculty member in the Department of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and most recently took the position of Scientific Director of the Davis Center for Regenerative Biology and Aging at Mount Desert Island Biological lab where he continues his NIH funded studies of kidney regeneration and stem cell derived tissue replacement.
