Dr. Huinan Liu

Assistant Professor

Department of Bioengineering, Materials Science and Engineering Program


Dr. Liu's research involves design, fabrication and evaluation of novel biomaterials for tissue regeneration and controlled drug delivery and actively explores nanomaterials and nanotechnology for medical applications.


Dr. Hideaki Tsutsui

Assistant Professor

Department of Mechanical Engineering


Dr. Tsutsui's research involves developing novel engineering methods to control the fate of stem cells toward successful translation into regenerative medicine.


Dr. Andre Obenaus

Adjunct Associate Professor

Department of Cell Biology & Neuroscience


Dr. Obenaus serves as the Director of the Non-Invasive Imaging Laboratory in the Radiation Biology Program at Loma Linda University. His laboratory is well known for its state-of-the-art equipment. His expertise is in the area of neuroimaging of disease, and the Noninvasive Imaging Laboratory has experience with a broad range of topics and models of disease including Alzhiemers and neurorepair using stem cells.


Dr. Ameae M. Walker


Biomedical Sciences


Dr. Walker's research is concerned with the growth factor activities of the hormone prolactin and examining methods to therapeutically target stem cells in breast cancer.


Dr. Nicole zur Nieden

Assistant Professor

Department of Cell Biology and Neuroscience


Dr. zur Nieden’s lab studies differentiation of stem cells into osteoblasts (bone forming cells) and uses bioreactors to produce bulk quantities of differentiating cells that could potentially be used to treat diseases such as osteoporosis and arthritis.


Dr. Prue Talbot

Professor of Cell Biology & Director of Stem Cell Center

Department of Cell Biology & Neuroscience


Dr. Talbot’s lab is developing assays that will enable human embryonic stem cells to be used to monitor and identify environmental toxicants and also studies differentiation of oocytes from stem cells.

Dr. Jiayu Liao

Assistant Professor

Department of Bioengineering


Dr. Liao studies signal transduction pathways in embryonic stem cells and recently discovered a new pathway for maintaining pluripotency in human embryonic stem cells.


Dr. Frances Sladek


Department of Cell Biology and Neuroscience


Dr. Sladek studies liver cell differentiation and is developing projects that may help in the treatment of diseases such as diabetes.
