Cameron is a biomedical engineer who specializes in regenerative medicine and applied cellular therapies. He was trained at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor where he received a bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering in 2017 and a master’s degree with a focus in biomaterials and regenerative medicine in 2018. He developed expertise in stem cell biology and protein engineering during his studies and has applied his knowledge to develop novel cellular therapies for both regenerative and oncologic indications. His research interests include designing membrane proteins to be inserted into cells or exosomes for enhanced therapeutic activity. He has designed novel CAR-T receptors designed to target solid tumors that are being investigated for safety and efficacy, and he has developed unique protocols for harvesting exosomes derived from mesenchymal stem cells that have the potential to be applied to a wide variety of indications.
