Greg Block

Summer student (2002, 2003), thesis student (2002-03) BSc, MSc, (PhD in progress)

When Greg first started in the lab, he was a summer student. His project went so well, that it extended into a fourth year thesis project which also went well, and formed much of our recent Am J Pathol paper. We are proud that he has progressed and is now at the University of Tulane, studying mesenchymal stem cells in Prokop’s lab.

Present location:
University of Tulane, soon to be in Texas A&M, Prokop lab
