Martin Stahl, PhD
Research and Development
Martin completed his PhD in microbiology at the University of Ottawa prior to starting his postdoctoral research at the University of British Columbia (UBC) and the BC Children’s Hospital Research Institute. After completing two postdoctoral fellowships awarded by the CIHR and Michael Smith Foundation, Martin received a Mitacs fellowship to work jointly between the Vallance lab at UBC and STEMCELL Technologies, developing new ways of employing intestinal organoids in academic research. This unique experience allowed Martin to work simultaneously in both academia and industry, gaining insight into how each functions and how to build a successful and long-term collaborative project. Following the completion of his fellowship, Martin was offered the opportunity to continue his work as a Scientist at STEMCELL Technologies. Now a Senior Scientist at STEMCELL, Martin’s work focuses on developing new media and applications for intestinal organoid products.
