Clive Niels SvendsenPhD
Clive Svendsen, Ph.D., did his pre-doctoral training at Harvard University. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Cambridge in England where he then established a stem cell research group before moving to the University of Wisconsin in 2000 to become Professor of Neurology and Anatomy, Director of an NIH funded Stem Cell Training Program and Co-Director of the University of Wisconsin Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Center. In 2010, he moved to Los Angeles to establish and direct the Cedars-Sinai Regenerative Medicine Institute, which currently has 15 faculty members and approximately 100 staff. One focus of his current research is to derive cells from patients with specific disorders which can then be "reprogrammed" to a primitive state and used as powerful models of human disease.
