About Jose Cibelli

Our basic research work focuses on looking at genes that are involved on changes of cell fate. As models we use somatic cell nuclear transfer in bovine and more recently, a more practical model, zebrafish.
At the translational level, and in collaboration with scientists form University of Washington and Andalucia, Spain, we are exploring new ways to safely and expeditiously bring the power of autologous stem cells to the clinic.
For the last 9 years I have been working at the Cellular Reprogramming Laboratory in the Departments of Animal Science and Physiology at Michigan State University. I also serve as the scientific director of LARCel, a sister Laboratory of Cell Reprogramming (LARCel) in Seville, Spain. Prior to joining academia I worked for Advanced Cell Technology, a stem cell company in Worcester, Massachusetts.
