Director of Cell Sciences
Among the world’s leading experts in the isolation of specific stem cells that are ideal for spraying onto burns and wounds, Dr. Roger Esteban-Vives research includes epidermal-dermal isolation of stem cells and investigations of post-spray dressings and their effect on freshly isolated keratinocytes.
Previously, at the McGowan Institute of Regenerative Medicine (University of Pittsburgh), Roger worked extensively with skin stem cells, their spray application to burns, and investigation of the impact that commercially-available wound dressings have on such cells.
Dr. Esteban-Vives received his bachelor in molecular biology at the University Autonoma of Barcelona (Barcelona, Spain). He worked as a molecular biologist from 2001 through 2003 at IRTA in Cabrils, Spain.
In 2003 he joined the pharmaceutical company, Oryzon Genomics in Barcelona, Spain, and was instrumental in developing a new technology to induce and detect mutations in organisms via high-throughput molecular detection systems. From this work, he received his Ph.D. in biotechnology from the University of Barcelona.
Dr. Esteban-Vives is published in various scientific journals and lectures at national and international scientific conferences around the world. He is also an Editorial Board Member of the Journal of Acute Disease, and serves as a scientific reviewer for a myriad of scientific journals.
