RONALD P. HART, Ph.D.
Professor, Department of Cell Biology and Neuroscience
Director, Human Genetics Institute of New Jersey Stem Cell Program
Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey
Dr. Hart obtained a Bachelor of Science degree from The University of Connecticut, and a doctorate from the University of Michigan Medical School. Following postdoctoral training at Rockefeller University, he joined the Rutgers (Newark) faculty in 1985. In 2000, Dr. Hart was invited to join the W. M. Keck Center for Collaborative Neuroscience to initiate a novel program to apply functional genomics technologies to the study of spinal cord injury and repair. In 2001, Dr. Hart’s group published the first comprehensive gene expression analysis of acute spinal cord injury. He has published over 100 scientific articles and has trained 10 Ph.D. students and 8 postdoctoral fellows. His current projects focus on genetically-defined human stem cell models of neurodegenerative, addiction, and developmental disorders. He also provides support for many research groups in bioinformatics. He directs the Stem Cell Program of the Human Genetics Institute of New Jersey, which assists and coordinates stem cell research programs at Rutgers.
