Robin Franklin is a Principal Investigator at Altos Labs – Cambridge Institute, having previously been Professor of Stem Cell Medicine at the Wellcome Trust-MRC Cambridge Stem Cell Institute. His laboratory has made many pioneering discoveries on the mechanisms by which adult CNS progenitors replace lost oligodendrocytes, describing how their function declines with aging and how this can be reversed, by, for example, partial reprogramming and manipulation of physical properties of the niche. Dr. Franklin’s laboratory will develop multidisciplinary collaborative links to further explore the underlying mechanisms of adult somatic stem cell aging. He is a Fellow of both the Academy of Medical Sciences and the Royal Society, as well as the recipient of the 2017 Barancik International Prize for Research Innovation and the 2021 King Faisal Prize for Medicine.
