Cytocentric Visionaries: Roger Rönn

Part Five: Unbroken Optimized Conditions for Hematopoietic Stem Cells.

This is a five-part series of blog posts containing excerpts from an interview that Dr. Alicia Henn, Chief Scientific Officer of BioSpherix, conducted with Roger Rönn, who is finishing his PhD at Lund University. Our conversation was edited for brevity and clarity.

In the last post, Part Four, Roger told us about the benefits of physiologic oxygen for HSC in vitro. Today, we discuss the practical aspects of carrying out such experiments.

Part One: The Detrimental Effects of High Intracellular Reactive Oxygen Species on Hematopoietic Stem Cells.

This is a five-part series of blog posts containing excerpts from an interview that Dr. Alicia Henn, Chief Scientific Officer of BioSpherix, conducted with Roger Rönn, who is a promising student just finishing his PhD at Lund University. Our conversation was edited for brevity and clarity.

Roger attracted quite a bit of attention with his poster at ISSCR 2015 entitled “Improved Output and Functionality of IPS Derived Hematopoietic Progenitors by Multi-Layered Stress Inhibition.”

His findings and his enthusiasm were so compelling that we invited him to discuss his work here.
