Speakers

Shane A. Shapiro, MD

Instructor in Family Medicine

Assistant Professor of Orthopedics

Mayo Clinic College of Medicine


Biography:

Regenerative medicine is a game-changing area of medicine with the potential to fully heal damaged tissues and organs, offering solutions and hope for people who have conditions that today are beyond repair. Dr. Shane Shapiro, Assistant Professor of Orthopedic Surgery at Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, studies novel regenerative techniques for chronic non-healing bone, joint, muscle, tendon, ligament and skin maladies that are not candidates for conventional surgical management. Dr. Shapiro has research protocols involving both bone marrow and adipose derived stem cells to treat arthritis, and recently, completed an FDA IND clinical trial using mesenchymal stem cells to treat osteoarthritic knees.


 

George Vasmatzis, PhD

Director of Biomarker Discovery Program  

Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine 


Biography:

Dr. George Vasmatzis is the director of the Biomarker Discovery Program, within the Center for Individualized Medicine, and his research program consists of bioinformatics specialists, molecular biologists, epidemiologists, and pathologists. He is a Consultant in the Department of Molecular Medicine and a member of the Mayo Clinic Cancer Center. He is also an Assistant Professor in the Department of Laboratory Medicine at the Mayo Medical School.  He has a Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering and has acquired experience in diverse disciplines, including Bioinformatics, Molecular Biology, and Computational Biology.  His laboratory has demonstrated success in discovery and translation of several biomarkers as well as developing evidence-based models that should help clinicians stratify (cancer) patients in order to provide each individual with the appropriate care.  With the recent advances in Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technologies the laboratory have been engaging in massive sequencing to scan the genome of cancer cells for abnormalities that can be used for clinical purposes such as diagnosis and stratification of patients for optimal treatment.  Published papers in Journal of Clinical Oncology, Cancer Research and BLOOD further demonstrate their discovery, validation and translation capabilities.


 

John D. Fryer, PhD

Associate Professor of Neuroscience

Mayo Clinic College of Medicine

Assistant Dean Mayo Graduate School in Florida

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Biography:

The laboratory of John D. Fryer, Ph.D., studies the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease, focusing on molecular mechanisms of known genetic risk factors. Dr. Fryer also dedicates his time to researching the role of the gut microbiome in mental health. The microbes in the gut and their collective genomes (the microbiome) have an increasingly recognized role in human health and disease. Dr. Fryer's team found that a high-fat diet and exercise both dramatically alter the levels of these microbes and associated levels of anxiety and cognition. The lab is now pursuing investigations of how the gut microbiome can be manipulated to alter mood and cognition in both mouse models and human populations.
