Benoit G. Bruneau, Ph.D., is Associate Director and Senior Investigator at the Gladstone Institute of Cardiovascular Disease, and Professor in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of California, San Francisco. He holds the William H. Younger, Jr., endowed chair in cardiovascular disease, and is the recipient of the Lawrence J. and Florence A. DeGeorge Charitable Trust/American Heart Association Established Investigator Award. Before joining Gladstone, Dr. Bruneau was a Scientist at The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto and Assistant Professor in the Department of Medical Genetics and Microbiology at the University of Toronto. He earned his doctorate in Physiology at the University of Ottawa and completed a postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Genetics at Harvard Medical School in the laboratory of Jonathan and Christine Seidman. Dr. Bruneau’s research is aimed at understanding the mechanisms by which gene programs are deployed during cardiac differentiation. He is interested in how all levels of transcriptional regulation coordinate this process, and how it is integrated during organogenesis. Ultimately through his lab’s efforts he would like to uncover how these processes are dysregulated in congenital heart disease, and how they could be harnessed to regenerate diseased hearts.
