Join us for Dinner with Professor Sackstein and his presentation on Stem Cell Therapeutics.
Professor Sackstein will present on “Reversing Degenerative Disease: The Promise of Stem Cell Therapeutics” , a hot topic in healthcare.
Join us for Dinner and presentation by Professor Robert Sackstein, MD, PhD.
Robert Sackstein, M.D., Ph.D., is a bone marrow transplant physician and biomedical researcher. He was born in Havana, Cuba, and immigrated to Miami, FL, where he attended public schools. He received his undergraduate degree from Harvard College, Summa cum Laude in biology, and his M.D. and Ph.D. (in Immunology) degrees from Harvard Medical School, where he also received the James Tolbert Shipley Prize for outstanding research. He then completed internal medicine training and fellowships in immunology and hematology at the University of Miami, and received the Young Investigator Award for Excellence in the Field of Hematology from the International Society for Experimental Hematology. Dr. Sackstein's research efforts have defined how cells in blood flow migrate to target tissues. In particular, he is widely recognized for developing a platform technology (known as "GPS") for programming cellular trafficking to sites of tissue injury, a necessary first step in achieving the promise of stem cell-based “regenerative” therapeutics. He is a Bone Marrow Transplant Physician at Brigham and Women's Hospital and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and holds a dual-appointment Professorship (in the fields of Medicine and Dermatology) at Harvard Medical School. In addition, he serves as Director of the Program of Excellence in Glycosciences at Harvard Medical School.
