Sonja Schrepfer, MD, PhD
Adjunct Professor, Department of Surgery, UCSF
Founder, Transplant and Stem Cell Immunobiology (TSI) Lab, Stanford University.
Sonja received her MD and PhD from the Universities Wuerzburg and Hamburg where she was awarded the Heisenberg Professorship for her work to understand the immune barrier in stem cell biology for regenerative medicine. Sonja and her team subsequently decreased the immunogenic potential of stem cells to generate hypo-immunogenic tissues and organs, work that was funded by the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine and National Institutes of Health among others.
Co-sponsored by the UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center Cancer and the Eli & Edythe Broad Center of Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research
