Hector Martinez (Research Associate III, Automation Systems & Molecular Biology)

Hector Martinez joined the NYSCF team in January 2010. He came to us from The Rockefeller University, where he worked with Noble Laureate Dr. Paul Greengard studying the components of the signal transduction cascade responsible for the regulation of Amyloid precursor protein breakdown and the formation of Aβ, with the aim of developing new targets for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease. Initially at NYSCF, in the lab of Dr. Dieter Egli, he investigated the cellular and molecular biology of diabetes by generating therapeutically relevant cells from Type I, II and monogenic diabetes patients using both somatic cell nuclear transfer and Induced pluripotent stem cell technologies. His current interests lie in the derivation of patient-specific stem cells for The NYSCF Global Stem Cell Array as well as the study of blood disorders with the aim to develop cell replacement therapies for human diseases.
