Maureen Condic, Ph.D.

Associate Scholar

Maureen Condic, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor of Neurobiology and Anatomy at the University of Utah. Some of Dr. Condic’s recent lab work has demonstrated that the regeneration of adult neurons in culture can be greatly improved by transgenic integrin expression. She is looking to expand these findings into more sophisticated models of adult regeneration. Dr. Condic received her Ph.D. at the University of California, Berkeley and was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of California, Berkeley and the University of Minnesota.

Dr. Condic was nominated and unanimously approved in November of 2014 to be a Member of the Pontifical Academy for Life, a distinguished group of physicians, scientists, and theologians from the international community whose mission it is to study questions and issues regarding the promotion and defense of human life from an interdisciplinary perspective.
