Emad Heidary Arash, Ph.D. is a postdoctoral fellow in the Willenbring Lab. He received his Bachelor of Science in Cell and Molecular Biology from the University of Tehran in Iran. Afterwards, he pursued his Ph.D. at the Biochemistry Department of the University of Toronto in the laboratory of Dr. Liliana Attisano where he studied the molecular mechanisms that regulate Hippo pathway. Emad is studying the mechanisms of myofibroblasts to hepatocytes reprogramming.
