Saunders, W. Brian individual record
Associate Professor

Over the past six years I have established a fully equipped and independent cell biology lab. We have developed techniques to isolate and characterize adult MSCs from a variety of species (humans, dogs, pigs, and rabbits). We are currently defining the molecular mechanisms of human and canine MSC invasion in three-dimensional collagen matrices, as well as the role of the extracellular matrix in differentiation of MSCs.
