The next edition of Journal Club will be on 20th March at 13:00 EST/18:00 UK where we will be discussing a new discovery about telomerase, and a potential way we might use it to improve tissue regeneration in humans.

We have talked about how the researchers found out how to supercharge stem cells in a recent article and we hope you will join us for an in-depth review of the paper during the Journal Club hosted by Dr. Oliver Medvedik.

About the author

Oliver Medvedik

Oliver Medvedik, Co-founder of Genspace citizen science laboratory in Brooklyn NY, earned his Ph.D. at Harvard Medical School in the Biomedical and Biological Sciences program. As part of his doctoral work he has used single-celled budding yeast as a model system to map the genetic pathways that underlie the processes of aging in more complex organisms, such as humans. Prior to arriving in Boston for his doctoral studies, he has lived most of his life in New York City. He obtained his bachelor’s degree in biology from Hunter College, City University of New York. Since graduating from Harvard, he has worked as a biotechnology consultant, taught molecular biology to numerous undergraduates at Harvard University and mentored two of Harvard’s teams for the international genetically engineered machines competition (IGEM) held annually at M.I.T.
