Dr. Markus Grompe is the Ray Hickey Professor and Director of the Papé Family Pediatric Research Institute at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland, Oregon, USA. His research has focused on the use of in vivo selection to enhance gene and cell transplantation therapy for inherited diseases. Hepatic stem cells and their use in therapeutic liver repopulation are a main focus. To study the properties of human cells in a physiologic setting the laboratory has developed murine models supporting the expansion of human stem cells in transgenic mice. These humanized mice are an ideal platform for the development for novel therapeutics, including small molecules, gene therapy vectors and cells. He has published over 200 peer-reviewed articles and holds numerous patents.
