Speaker Bio:

For over 20 years, Jonathan Epstein has been performing cutting edge stem cell research at the Perelman School of Medicine of the University of Pennsylvania, where he is the Chief Scientific Officer and Executive Vice Dean.  Epstein, who grew up in New Haven and Boston, with a brief stint at the Dragon School in Oxford, England, trained as a cardiologist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital where he also performed postdoctoral studies in Genetics.  He is a member of the National Academy of Medicine and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and he serves on the Counsel of Councilors at the National Institutes of Health as an advisor to the Director, Frances Collins.  His work has focused on the causes of congenital heart disease and adult heart failure and on fundamental mechanisms of stem cell and regenerative biology.  He oversees the ~$1B research enterprise of the Perelman School, which has resulted in 5 FDA approvals for new therapies in the past 18 months, and he has been a champion of creating and attracting biotech to the Philadelphia region.  He will comment on new paradigms in basic science that have led to new cures and about the growth and future potential for biotech in Philadelphia.
