Dr. Tanja Dominko obtained her PhD in Endocrinology and Reproductive Physiology at the UW-Madison in 1996. In 1997 she relocated to the Oregon Regional Primate Research Center in Portland, Oregon, as a Staff Scientist. Her work focused on production of genetically identical non-human primates as models for biomedical research. Dr. Dominko was a senior research scientist with Advanced Cell Technology in Worcester, MA for two years developing strategies for autologous cell therapy. In 2002 she founded CellThera, Inc. to develop new strategies for treatment of degenerative diseases that do not rely on embryonic stem cells. In 2003 CellThera undertook significant research efforts in Restorative Injury Repair. CellThera announced its partnership with Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) in Worcester, MA in 2006, where Dr. Dominko holds a Research Assistant Professor appointment. Her laboratory has ongoing and active collaborations with WPI, University of Massachusetts Medical School, MA, Tulane University, LA, University of California-Irvine, CA and University of Louisville, KY.
She serves as a reviewer for NIH competitive grants, and holds an expert status for Cell Therapy in the European Union (Brussels, Belgium). She was the senior editor of the “Cloning and Stem Cells” journal since its inception in 1998 until 2001. Dr. Dominko has authored and co-authored over 25 peer reviewed research papers in reproductive biology, nuclear transplantation, cell biology of gametes and embryos, and embryonic stem cells.
