Jasmeet Reyat


Postdoctoral Research Scientist

Jasmeet is a BHF CRE-funded Postdoctoral Research Scientist working in the Simões group. He obtained his PhD at the University of Birmingham looking at the regulation of leukocyte diapedesis by matrix metalloproteinase family members. Following this, Jasmeet took up his first postdoctoral research fellow position in the lab of Professor Martin Hemler at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute/Harvard Medical School. Here he investigated targeting of the TGFβ pathway in melanoma metastasis. For this work, he was awarded the Baruj J. Benacerraf Fellowship in Immunology. He subsequently returned to the UK to work with Professor Paulus Kirchhof to investigate the use of induced-pluripotent stem cell derived cardiomyocytes as a model to investigate cardiac arrhythmias and with Dr Katja Gehmlich to investigate cardiomyopathies.

At Oxford, Jasmeet is combining his interests in cardiology and immunology to investigate the therapeutic potential of macrophages in regenerative medicine. To do this, he will develop a novel stem-cell based 3D in vitro model of the heart in combination with multiomics approaches to study cardiac regeneration.
