About Mentor:

Evan Y. Snyder, who is regarded as one of the “fathers of the stem cell field”, earned his M.D. and Ph.D. (in neuroscience) from the University of Pennsylvania and received training in Philosophy, Pscyhology, and Linguistics at Oxford University. He began his career as a physician-scientist at Harvard Medical School and Boston Children’s Hospital where, in addition to running a lab, remained clinically active in pediatric neurology and newborn intensive care medicine. After 23 years at Harvard, he was recruited to the Sanford-Burnham-Prebys Medical Discovery Institute and UCSD as Professor and founding director of the Center for Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine and the Stem Cell Research Center and Core Facility. His ab studies the basic and translational biology of stem cells (particularly neural) with the goal of understanding normal and aberrant development, tissue homeostasis and plasticity, inter-cellular communication, oncogenesis, and recovery of function as well as using stem cells to model disease for pathway mapping and drug discovery.
