Ph.D., Assistant Professor | Canada Research Chair in Cellular Therapy Bioprocess Engineering
Dr. Corinne Hoesli is an Assistant Professor in Chemical Engineering at McGill University, Montréal, Québec, Canada. Her laboratory, The Stem Cell Bioprocessing Laboratory, works on engineering bioreactors for stem cell culture. We apply engineering approaches to design, optimize and scale up stem cell production systems. We are currently investigating the effects of various biomaterials and 3D culture on pluripotent stem cell differentiation into pancreatic cells as well as vascular endothelial cells. The main areas of applications of our research are diabetes cellular therapy and the development of vascular substitutes to treat cardiovascular disease.Learn more
