Makoto Senoo was appointed Assistant Professor of Developmental Biology at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine in 2007, after completing postdoctoral research in the Department of Cell Biology at Harvard Medical School. He received his undergraduate degree in Biomedical Engineering from Keio University in Japan in 1994 and his PhD in Medicine from Tokai University School of Medicine in Japan in 2002.
My research focuses on stem cell biology and regenerative medicine. In particular, my lab is studying the role of the self-renewal factor p63 in epithelial homeostasis and diseases, with a long-term goal of developing stem cell-based therapeutic options.
