“Breaking News in Stem Cells” is the only lecture series that brings the top papers in the field to your desktop as they happen
This month, Randolph Ashton, Ph.D., will present.
Randolph Ashton, Ph.D.

University of Wisconsin–Madison
Dr. Ashton’s lab develops novel tissue engineering methodologies to derive brain and spinal cord tissues from human pluripotent stem cells, which can be used to create groundbreaking regenerative therapies and models of neurological disorders.
The Ashton Group's goal is to understand, model, and recapitulate in vitro the instructive signals utilized by human embryos to pattern tissue-specific differentiation of pluripotent stem cells, and apply this knowledge towards the rational design of tissue engineered scaffolds and other regenerative therapeutic strategies. Currently, we primarily focus on generating tissues and therapies for the central nervous system.
