Bio Gary L. Darmstadt, MD, MS, is Associate Dean for Maternal and Child Health, and Professor of Neonatal and Developmental Pediatrics in the Department of Pediatrics at the Stanford University School of Medicine. Previously Dr. Darmstadt was Senior Fellow in the Global Development Program at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF), where he led a cross-foundation initiative on Women, Girls and Gender, assessing how addressing gender inequalities and empowering women and girls leads to improved gender equality as well as improved health and development outcomes. Prior to this role, he served as BMGF Director of Family Health, leading strategy development and implementation across nutrition, family planning and maternal, newborn and child health.
Darmstadt was formerly Associate Professor and Founding Director of the International Center for Advancing Neonatal Health in the Department of International Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. He has trained in Pediatrics at Johns Hopkins University, in Dermatology at Stanford University, and in Pediatric Infectious Disease as a fellow at the University of Washington, Seattle, where he was Assistant Professor in the Departments of Pediatrics and Medicine. Dr. Darmstadt left the University of Washington to serve as Senior Research Advisor for the Saving Newborn Lives program of Save the Children-US, where he led the development and implementation of the global research strategy for newborn health and survival, before joining Johns Hopkins.

Jens Durruthy Durruthy
Postdoctoral Research fellow, Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility
Current Research and Scholarly Interests I graduated from Stanford University and Technical University Berlin in a joined program with a PhD in biomedical engineering in 2014. During my PhD I developed a transplantation model in which undifferentiated RNA-derived human induced pluripotent stem cells are transplanted into mouse testes to study early-stage germ cell formation. I am currently a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University and pursue my interest in human stem cell research, RNA biology and early human embryo development. Specifically, my research focuses on exploring a novel class of long noncoding RNAs that are of retroviral origin and pluripotent specific. I study the underlying mechanisms of how long noncoding RNAs are regulating pluripotency acquisition and maintenance of human stem cells on a single cell level.
Moreover, I study human preimplantation embryo development and the complex dynamic cellular and molecular events that lead to the formation of all three lineages of the blastocyst (trophectoderm, epiblast, primitive endoderm). In particular, I use high throughput single-cell quantitative RT-PCR gene expression analysis to uncover crucial new insights into the earliest cell differentiation events of the human preimplantation embryo. I further extend this analysis on a genome wide level (RNA-seq) to assess the transcriptional profile characteristic of single cells to eventually reconstruct a gene expression map of the human blastocyst.
