Gladstone Institutes, CA, United States
Deepak Srivastava, M.D., is President of the Gladstone Institutes, Director of the Roddenberry Stem Cell Center at Gladstone, and Professor at the University of California, San Francisco. Dr. Srivastava’s laboratory discovered genetic bases for human cardiac septal and valve defects and revealed complex gene networks that regulate progenitor cells to adopt a cardiac cell fate and subsequently fashion a functioning heart. He has leveraged this knowledge to reprogram fibroblasts directly into cardiomyocyte-like cells.
