About the Author

Kursad Turksen received his Ph.D. from the University of Toronto in Toronto, Canada in the area of osteoprogenitor biology and cell selection methodologies. He completed his postdoctoral training at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, University of Chicago, in Chicago, Illinois, studying epidermal biology through use of genetically-altered mouse models. He joined the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute in Ottawa, Canada [previously known as the Loeb Research Institute] where he rose to the position of Senior Scientist in the Division of Regenerative Medicine. His research interests focus on stem cell biology, with a particular interest in the Claudin family of tight junction proteins and their role in epidermal lineage commitment and progression during development in health and disease. Dr. Turksen was, until recently, Editor in Chief of the Springer journal Stem Cell Reviews and Reports and currently serves as Series Editor for the Springer series Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine.
