The Center for Cell Reprogramming at Georgetown University Medical Center is proud to announce that Dr. Anton Wellstein has been newly appointed as its Deputy Director.  Dr. Wellstein has been involved with the Center since its inception and is the director of the GI biology program within the Center.  He is currently the co-PI on an R33 NCI grant focused on Conditional Cell Reprogramming, and many of his laboratory pursuits involve the biology of cancer stem cells.  His role will be to help guide the Center in defining future directions and collaborations, recruiting new faculty, and assisting with private and public foundation support.  We are excited to have Dr. Wellstein assume this important new position within the Center.
