"How to make a blood stem cell" Professor Roger Patient University of Oxford

Roger Patient is currently Professor of Developmental Genetics at Oxford University in the UK, having been Professor of Molecular Genetics and Director of the Developmental Biology Research Centre at King¹s College London, and Professor of Genetics at Nottingham University in the UK. He is Deputy Director of the MRC Molecular Haematology Unit in the Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine on the John Radcliffe Hospital site.Ongoing research projects in his lab include defining the transcriptional networks that programme hematopoietic stem cells during embryonic development, and the embryonic signalling pathways that lay these programmes down. A similar approach to development of the myocardium is being taken. These processes are highly conserved in evolution allowing exploitation of the considerable technical advantages of the amphibian, Xenopus, and zebrafish model systems. He has served on several MRC and medical charity panels, as Deputy Chair of the MRC Molecular and Cellular Medicine Board and a member of the British Heart Foundation Chairs and Programme Grants Committee. He has been elected to EMBO.
