Jeffrey M. Gimble, M.D., Ph.D.

Research Interests

Dr. Gimble's laboratory focuses on the isolation and characterization of adult stem cells from adipose tissue and bone marrow. These stromal cells have multiple differentiation potential and are capable of forming adipocytes, chondrocytes, hematopoietic supporting cells, neuronal cells, and osteoblasts in vitro. We are exploring the regulatory mechanisms governing the adult stem cell's fate and how they can be applied to regenerative medical problems.
