HELEN M. BLAU, Ph.D. (co-founder) Helen Blau is the Donald E. and Delia B. Baxter Professor and Director of the Baxter Laboratory for Stem Cell Biology at Stanford University.

Dr. Blau's research area is regenerative medicine with a focus on stem cells. She is world renowned for her research on nuclear reprogramming and demonstrating the plasticity of mammalian cell fate using cell fusion. Her laboratory has also pioneered the prospective isolation of muscle stem cells, the design of biomaterials to mimic in vivo microenvironments that maintain stem cell function, and methods for assessing and increasing the efficacy of muscle stem cell therapy. The goal is to develop treatments for sarcopenia, cachexia and heritable muscle wasting disorders. As an alternate cell source for regenerative medicine, her lab is pursuing dedifferentiation, a means of inducing postmitotic cells of known identity to reproduce themselves, like regenerative organisms such as newts. Her laboratory is known for the development of multidisciplinary innovative technologies to overcome major basic and clinical hurdles in order to further regenerative medicine.
Dr. Blau has been a member of several boards including the Ellison Medical Foundation Scientific Advisory Board and the Harvard Board of Overseers and is an elected member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences and a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Awards and honors include the Senior Career Recognition Award of WICB of the American Society of Cell Biology; the FASEB Excellence in Science Award; an Honorary Doctorate from the University of Nijmegen, Holland; a Nobel Forum Lecture at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, a Rolf-Sammet-Fonds Visiting Professorship at the University of Frankfurt, a plenary talk at the 400th Pontifical Academy at the Vatican and an audience with Pope John Paul II; the AACR Irving Weinstein Foundation Lectureship for innovative science; a Fulbright Senior Specialist award to study and teach at the Institut Pasteur and Institut Curie in Paris.
Dr. Blau earned a B.A. from the University of York in England, an M.A. and Ph.D. in biology from Harvard University, and was a postdoctoral fellow in the Departments of Biochemistry and Biophysics and the Division of Medical Genetics at UCSF before joining the faculty at Stanford where she rose through the ranks from Assistant to Associate to Full Professor.
Dr. Blau is a co-founder of Didimi, the chair of the Scientific Advisory Board, and serves on the Board of Directors.
