Harnessing stem cells to repair heart function

Professor Richard Harvey and Dr Aude Dorison

Professor Richard Harvey is the Head of the Developmental and Stem Cell Biology Division at the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute and University of New South Wales.

Richard’s lab focuses on the development, function and regeneration of the mammalian heart, and the different layers of information – developmental, cellular, molecular, genetic and epigenetic – that guide these processes.

Read more about his research in Harnessing stem cells to repair heart function.

Listen to Richard and Aude share an insight into their research exploring if they can regenerate the heart, the importance of interdisciplinary science and the excitement they feel when they challenge the natural world and get a read back.
