Biography/Research Focus

I am currently involved in a variety of research projects within both the Mesenchymal Stem Cell Research Group and the Myeloma Research Group, and have been extensively involved in research and development support in developing biological products for a broad field of regenerative medicine, including large scale production of low passage MSCs for various clinical trials. I also support the lab with day-to-day duties which enables the lab to run smoothly and effectively.
