Hynek Wichterle

Columbia University, NY, United States

Hynek Wichterle is a Jerry and Emily Spiegel Associate Professor holding a joint appointment in the Departments of Pathology & Cell Biology and Neuroscience (in Neurology) at Columbia University. He received his M.S. degree from Charles University in Prague and his Ph.D. degree from The Rockefeller University under the tutelage of Dr Arturo Alvarez Buylla. He trained with Dr Thomas Jessell at Columbia University, where he became assistant professor in 2004 and associate professor in 2012. He serves as a co-director of the Center for Motor Neuron Biology and Disease. Dr Wichterle developed groundbreaking methods for producing spinal cord neurons from pluripotent stem cells. He is using the system to decode transcriptional programs that control neuronal differentiation and to study motor neuron degenerative diseases.
