Carl Gregory, PhD
Assistant Professor - Department of Molecular and Cellular Medicine-Texas A&M HSC
Carl Gregory is an Assistant Professor of Molecular and Cellular Medicine at the Institute for Regenerative Medicine located in Temple, Texas. He received his B.S. in Biochemistry with honors from the University of York in 1995, and his Ph.D. in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology from the University of Manchester in 1999 working with Dr. Raymond Boot-Handford and Dr. Gillian Wallis on developmental disorders of collagen. Carl’s postdoctoral work was at the University of Manchester Medical School, then at a small biopharmaceutical company, NeuTec Pharma, located at the Manchester Royal infirmary where he worked on recombinant antibody synthesis.
Dr Gregory then joined Tulane University Health Science Center, working with Dr. Darwin Prockop on mesenchymal stem cells from bone marrow. He later accepted a position as Assistant Professor in the Department of Medicine at Tulane in 2005. Dr. Gregory joined the faculty at Texas A&M University System Health Science Center in July 2008.
Carl’s research interests include the General Biology of Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) which are purified from bone marrow based on their ability to adhere to plastic. Dr. Gregory also specializes in bone repair by MSCs, based on the detailed characterization of the molecular mechanism of osteoblast differentiation by MSCs. Dr. Gregory has been a great asset to the Scientific Advisory Board of Theodent since early 2011.
