Dr. Andras Nagy Ph.D., Canada Research Chair and Senior Investigator, Samuel Lunenfeld Research Institute and Professor, Department of Molecular and Medical Genetic, University of Toronto.
Dr. Nagy discovered a new method for creating stem cells that accelerates the technology and provides a road map for new clinical approaches to regenerative medicine. He studies embryonic stem cells, which can be induced to differentiate into any cell type of the adult body. He created the first human embryonic stem cell lines in Canada in 2005. Recent advances in stem cells research have created hope for the possible cure of diseases such as Parkinson's, diabetes, macular degeneration and spinal-cord injury.
