Dr Samir Taoudi
Dr Samir Taoudi performed his PhD studies at the Institute for Stem Cell Research, University of Edinburgh, under the supervision of Professor Alexander Medvinsky. During this time Samir investigated the early lineage ancestry of the haematopoietic stem cell lineage within the mid-gestation embryo. In 2008 Samir took a post-doctoral position with Professor Douglas Hilton at the Walter and Eliza Institute, where he studied the role of the ETS transcription factor ERG during establishment of the embryonic haematopoietic system. In 2011 Samir accepted a faculty position at WEHI where his lab investigates the formation and function of blood cells during embryonic development and neonatal life.
