DIRK HOCKEMEYER, PH.D.

Hockemeyer focuses on establishing reliable techniques to model human diseases using genetically engineered human stem cell models, human organoid systems, and genetic mouse models. Leveraging these methods with his expertise in telomere biology, he seeks to understand the consequences of telomere shortening in adult stem cells and how this impacts tumor formation, stem cell renewal, long-term tissue renewal, and organismal aging.
