    Temp - Non-Exempt, Stem Cell Bio Regenerative Med Institute

    Bio Dr. Katharina Volz has been immersed in the field of biomedical sciences for the past 12 years, starting with her attendance at Germany's Valckenburg Biotechnology High school. She was the first German high school student to be accepted into a research program at Harvard University and has since been awarded several fellowships and awards to do research in 10 labs around the world. Katharina pioneered Stanford University's first PhD in Stem Cell Biology & Regenerative Medicine in 2015 and has been one of the fastest PhD recipients in the university's history, earning her degree in just 2.5 years. During her PhD thesis in the Red-Horse and Weissman labs, Katharina tracked the path of single cells in a developing mouse heart and identified the progenitor cells that form arteries and the signal required for this differentiation event. During the last semester of her PhD, Katharina attended Stanford Business School's Startup Garage Program where she founded a company to accelerate scientific discovery.
