Kevin is an Advisor to LifeVault, Inc.

Dr. Eggan received his Ph.D. from the Department of Biology at MIT, where he made important contributions to understanding the mechanisms that can contribute to cellular reprogramming. Following his doctoral studies, he launched his own group in the Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology at Harvard University. There his laboratory was the first to show that human adult cells can be reprogrammed to pluripotentcy and to produce patient-specific induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells. Currently, Dr. Eggan is a Professor of Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology at Harvard University, where his research group continues to improve approaches for reprogramming as well as pursue strategies for using iPS cells in the development of new therapeutics.
