Replacing Aging — Dr. Jean M. Hebert, Ph.D. Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
Dr. Jean M. Hebert, Ph.D. (https://einsteinmed.org/faculty/9069/jean-hebert/) is Professor in the Department of Genetics and in the Dominick P. Purpura Department of Neuroscience, at Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
He is also the author Replacing Aging which explains how regenerative medicine can beat aging.
Hebert has a Ph.D. from the University of California in San Francisco. His current research projects are divided into two categories.
They first focus on using the mouse’s neocortex to test the ability of multicell type grafts, which are increasingly resembling the normal neocortex, to integrate with the host tissue.
Second, they test the ability of genetically modified microglia to disperse through the adult neocortex and boost neocortical functions.
These multidisciplinary projects, which are highly collaborative, require a variety of methods including molecular biology, stem cell biology in human embryos, transcriptomics and surgery. They also need electrophysiology, brain imaging live, behavioral tests and other techniques.
