Seminar Host: Professor Paul Riley,  BHF  Professor of Regenerative Medicine

All Welcome

Kenneth Poss is a James B. Duke Professor in the Department of Cell Biology at Duke University School of Medicine.  He received his B.A. in Biology from Carleton College in 1992, and his Ph.D. in Biology from  MIT  in 1998 for research with Susumu Tonegawa.  Dr. Poss was a postdoctoral fellow with Mark Keating at the University of Utah and Boston Children’s Hospital.  In 2003, he initiated his research program at Duke to investigate tissue regeneration in the zebrafish model system.  He discovered heart regeneration in zebrafish, establishing an important natural model of robust cardiac repair, and his laboratory has identified key mechanisms of heart and fin regeneration over the past decade.  His research goal is to elucidate the cellular and molecular mechanisms of vertebrate tissue regeneration, and to use this information to improve the poor regenerative capacity of human tissues like the heart, spinal cord, and limbs.
