For the last 15 years, she has worked on the development of cell therapies using human adult and embryonic stem cells, in academia and industry. Her work involved discovery and translation including developing strategies for preclinical development and navigating the regulatory process.

At CytoTherapeutics (now StemCells, Inc), Dr. Carpenter derived human neural stem cells and developed the media formulation for scale-up. She has been involved with human embryonic stem cell research from the beginning. As Director of Stem Cell Biology, Geron Corporation she was responsible for managing discovery research and preclinical programs for Parkinson's disease, spinal cord injury, cardiac disease, liver disease and diabetes.
