Ellen Heber-Katz, PhD

Resident Faculty

Dr. Heber-Katz is an internationally renowned immunologist who investigates mammalian regeneration, having discovered the unusual ability of the MRL mouse strain (used in autoimmunity research) to regenerate wounds without scarring and to fully restore damaged tissues. Her work on regeneration has been extended into National Cancer Institute-funded studies of novel aspects of breast cancer causation.
