Abstract

Michael Rendl is a stem cell researcher internationally recognized for his work on dermal papilla (DP) cell functions as instructive niche for hair follicle stem cells and progenitors. He received his MD from the Medical University of Vienna in Austria. Dr. Rendl completed his postdoctoral training as Max Kade and Erwin Schrödinger Fellow in the laboratory of Elaine Fuchs at The Rockefeller University, where he first began studying the specialized mesenchymal niche of the hair follicle. Since 2008, Dr. Rendl runs his research laboratory at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City, where he is Associate Professor in Cell, Developmental and Regenerative Biology and Dermatology, and Associate Director of the Black Family Stem Cell Institute. His laboratory pioneered cellular and molecular studies of the DP and Dermal Condensates, the embryonic DP precursor cells that orchestrate hair follicle morphogenesis. New mechanistic and functional insights continue to build a platform for developing future hair regenerative therapies.
