EPFL E E-DOC CDOCT
Daniel Constam received his doctoral degree from ETH Zürich for studying the immunoregulatory cytokine TGFβ in the central nervous system (1993). In 1994, he became an EMBO postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University where he investigated the regulation of TGFβ signaling by proprotein convertases during embryogenesis. He joined ISREC as a group leader in 2000 and EPFL in 2005, where he was appointed associate professor at the School of Life Sciences in 2007. His general interest is in elucidating molecular interactions of stem and progenitor cells with their microenvironment and how they effectuate normal tissue morphogenesis.
