Hiromitsu Nakauchi, Stanford University, USA
Dr. Nakauchi became a Professor of Immunology at the University of Tsukuba where he demonstrated that a single hematopoietic stem cell could reconstitute the entire hematopoietic system, a definitive experimental proof for the “stemness”. Since April 2002, he has been a Professor of Stem Cell Therapy in the Institute of Medical Science at The University of Tokyo. In 2014, he joined faculty at Stanford University to continue his stem cell research at the Institute of Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine.
