Dr. Mickie Bhatia
Dr. Bhatia is a recognized leader in human stem cell research and has received several awards throughout his career. He was a Canadian recipient of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal, and recipient of Canada’s Top 40 Under 40 award. He received the Premier’s Research Excellence Award from the Ministry of Energy, Science and Technology, was announced as McMaster University’s Innovator of the Year in 2011, and received the University of Guelph Alumni Medal of Achievement in 2008. As well, Dr. Bhatia has been appointed the Michael G. DeGroote Chair in Stem Cell and Cancer Biology.
Although stem cells can serve as sources for cellular and organ replacement in tissue damaged by trauma or genetic influences, and for disease intervention, Dr. Bhatia’s studies focus on human cancer and using human stem cells to understand how cancer begins and how treatment may be revolutionized. His work has been published in several major journals over the years, and his program continues to focus on two central areas; 1) developing abundant sources of human hematopoietic progenitors, and 2) using human stem cells to develop treatments to eliminate tumor reoccurrence.
