Featured McCaig Institute Trainee: Suman Nath

Developing stem cell treatments for skeletal diseases

Suman Nath is a postdoctoral fellow in Derrick Rancourt’s lab. His research focuses on applying human stem cells for curing degenerative diseases. He is developing bioprocesses for reprogramming human skin cells to induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) in a bioreactor for treating degenerative diseases. He plans to derive bone and cartilage tissue from these cells to develop treatments for skeletal diseases such as arthritis and osteoporosis. He hopes to pursue an academic research career in the future.
