7 - THE ROLE OF DISTINCT POPULATIONS OF MUSCLE STEM CELLS DURING REGENERATION AND ORGAN GROWTH

6/22/2018
14:45 - 15:10

Peter Currie

Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute, VIC, Australia

Peter Currie received his PhD in Drosophila genetics from Syracuse University, New York, USA. He undertook postdoctoral training in zebrafish development at the Imperial Cancer Research Fund (now Cancer Research UK) in London, UK.
His work is centered on understanding how the small freshwater zebrafish, an important model in biomedical research, is able to build and regenerate skeletal muscle and how this information can be used to design better treatments for muscle diseases.
In 2016 he was appointed Director of the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia.
Prof Currie, along with Dr Georgina Hollway, from the Garvan Institute of Medical Research, and Dr Phong Nguyen of ARMI at Monash University, won the UNSW 2015 Eureka Prize for Scientific Research.
