Stem cells can be considered as the foundation cells for every organ and tissue in our bodies due to its two key abilities- a. the ability to self-renew, dividing in a manner that makes copies of themselves. b. Ability to differentiate, giving rise to the mature types of cells that make up our orgRead more

Dr. Monther AlAlwan is a scientist at the Stem Cell and Tissue Re-engineering Program (SCTRP), King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Centre, as well as an Associate professor at Alfaisal University, Riyadh Saudi Arabia. He holds M.Sc. and Ph.D. in Immunology from Dalhousie University (Halifax, Canada). Dr. AlAlwan conducted a 3-years postdoctoral fellowship studying signaling in immune cells at the University of Manitoba, Canada. During his graduate studies and postdoctoral fellowship, Dr. AlAlwan made substantial contribution in the immunology field, particularly his groundbreaking discovery that highlighted the significance of the dendritic cells in the immunological synapse. After joining the SCTRP in 2007, he shifted gear to study cancer, where he identified novel mechanisms that regulate cancer metastasis and chemoresistance. Currently, he is actively involved in dissecting the molecular pathways that regulate the function of cancer stem cells and how this related to chemoresistance and metastasis. Dr. AlAlwan is an author in 20 peer-reviewed publications, has delivered several invited lectures and is a regular reviewer for various international journals.
