"Turning Fat Into Bone and Muscle"

Warren Grayson, PhD
Assistant Professor
Johns Hopkins University

Warren Grayson, PhD is an Assistant Professor in the Johns Hopkins’ Biomedical Engineering and Translational Tissue Engineering Center. He obtained his B.Sc. in Chemical & Process Engineering at The University of the West Indies, his PhD in Biomedical Engineering from Florida State University, and completed his postdoctoral training at Columbia University in New York. His research interests focus on engineering musculoskeletal grafts for craniofacial and orthopaedic tissue regeneration. Dr. Grayson’s previous work on bioreactor design and engineering anatomically shaped bone grafts has received national and international coverage in the New York Times, BBC, and Science Translational Medicine, among others.  He has been recognized by the Maryland Science Center as an Outstanding Young Engineer and has received awards from the Orthopaedic Research Society and the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research. Currently, his lab focuses on spatial and temporal regulation of stem cell differentiation in 3D constructs to generate clinically useful engineered grafts.
