"Powering Tissue Regeneration for an Aging Population"

Over the last few decades there has been an increasing interest in analyzing the science of longevity. This reawakened interest is based in part on Nobel prize-winning discoveries. At Stanford, Dr. Helms’ group works on understanding why healing rates slow as we age, and at Ankasa Regenerative Therapeutics, some of that ground-breaking bench science is being translated into therapeutic strategies to accelerate bone repair in older patients. 

Dr. Helms is a leading scientist in the fields of stem cell biology and longevity. She is the co-founder and acting Chief Scientific Officer of Ankasa Regenerative Therapeutics, a venture-backed biopharmaceutical start-up based in South San Francisco. Her work at both Stanford and Ankasa has been supported by over $12M in funding from CIRM, as her group works to translate basic science discoveries into therapies for the orthopedic, dental, and dermatology/plastic surgery fields.
Trained at Baylor College of Medicine, Professor Helms attained tenure at the University of California, San Francisco and has been a Professor at Stanford University in the School of Medicine since 2004. Dr. Helms is the inventor on multiple patents and the recipient of numerous awards, most recently the Distinguished Scientist Isaac Schour Memorial Award, the highest honor bestowed from the International Association of Dental Research to recognize her contributions to field.
