Dr. Daniel Garry (University of Minnesota) and Dr. James Thomson (University of Wisconsin, Madison) expect to provide a basic understanding of the hierarchy of cardiovascular precursor cellsand research the molecular events leading to the formation of blood-forming cells and heart forming cells as a prelude to therapeutic applications.

research focus: 

Dr. Daniel Garry’s work focuses on the development of heart cells. This includes heart stem cells and heart progenitor cells. His research is directed towards discovering treatments for patients with common and deadly congenital heart disease and advanced heart failure.
