Most professors have their favorite disease or gene and focus the bulk of their energy on solving the mysteries of their particular field of interest. They may have five or six projects running simultaneously, but for the most part, every project is designed around one research subject.
Dr. Jefffery Karp is the exception to that rule. His lab runs between 20-25 research project at any given time. Twenty to twenty five projects. That’s huge. Dr. Karp is the co-director of the Center for Regenerative Therapeutics (ReGen Rx) at Bringham Women’s Hospital and his lab develops breakthrough translational technologies such as the recently developed platform technology for monitoring single-cell interactions in real-time.
