Additional information

Research area

The Laboratory of Regenerative and Movement Biology was launched on Feb 1st 2018, as part of the Department of Health Sciences and Technology (D-HEST) at ETH Zurich. The primary scientific interest and long-term goal of the lab is to develop stem cell-based therapy approaches to treat degenerative loss of muscle mass in the form of muscular disorders, muscle injuries, and age-associated muscle wasting. To this end, we employ state-of-the-art mouse transgenic models, direct lineage reprogramming methods as well as stem cell lines cultured in vitro to dissect the molecular drivers that orchestrate skeletal muscle regeneration. Our lab is especially interested in elucidating the genetic and epigenetic changes that occur during cellular reprogramming, and the role transcription factors and signaling pathways play during the regeneration course.  

Curriculum Vitae

Ori Bar-Nur is an Assistant Professor of Regenerative and Movement Biology and a member of the Institute of Human Movement Sciences and Sport (IBWS). He received his PhD degree with distinction from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem for his research on human induced pluripotent stem cells, which he conducted under the supervision of Professor Nissim Benvenisty (2007-2012). During 2012, he joined the laboratory of Professor Konrad Hochedlinger at Harvard Medical School for his postdoctoral training where he investigated the role transcription factors and small molecules play during cell fate transitions (2012-2017). Since February 2018 he serves as an assistant professor at the Department of Health Sciences and Technology in ETH Zurich.
