Professor Saitou


Prof Mitinori Saitou MD PhD

Institute for the Advanced Study of Human Biology (ASHBi), Kyoto University, Japan.

Presenting | ‘Mechanisms and In Vitro Reconstitution of Mammalian Germ Cell Development’


Professor Saitou has provided seminal advances in understanding germline specification and development in mammals such as mice, primates and humans. He has pioneered  in vitro derivation of germline cells from embryonic stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells, including the production of animals from the resulting germ cells. His work has significantly advanced understanding of the mouse and human germlines and raises interesting biological, clinical, agricultural, conservation and ethical questions surrounding in vitro production of germ cells and offspring.
