24 Jul 2019 | Amsterdam, NL – Our newest member of the StemJournal senior team has expertise combining stem cells with biomaterial scaffolds.
Stephanie Willerth, PhD has been promoted to Senior Editor of StemJournal responsible for overseeing submitted papers that focus on bioengineering and biomaterials. A biomedical engineer at the University of Victoria in Canada, Stephanie has been associated with StemJournal since its launch, both first as an Advisory Editorial Board member (see her profile here) and then as a co-author on the very first StemJournal paper to be published (see the Q&A here).
It is the intention to enable the broadest range of expertise at the senior level of the Editorial Board, which is one of the reasons that Stephanie has received this promotion.
To get some insight of Stephanie's research, discover more about her pioneering use of 3D bioprinting for brain tissues. Dr. Willerth comments: "The field of 3D bioprinting in combination with iPSC technology offers huge potential for developing personalized medicine approaches to identifying promising drug targets for treating neurological diseases and disorders.” How bioprinting pluripotent stem cells may be able to advance Alzheimer’s research is explained here.
There are other plans afoot for more additions to the senior of the journal: watch this space!
