Amander Clark, Ph.D.

A Short Biography:

Amander Clark is a stem cell biologist who specializes in reproductive and developmental biology.  She has served on the UCLA College of Letters and Science faculty since she joined the Department of Molecular Cell and Developmental Biology (MCDB) in 2006.  She was awarded Associate Professor with tenure in 2012 and Professor in 2015. Since 2013, Dr Clark served as Vice Chair of MCDB, and was promoted to Department Chair in 2017.  Dr. Clark earned her PhD in Anatomy and Cell Biology at the University of Melbourne, she was a postdoctoral fellow at Baylor College  of Medicine, and the University of California, San Francisco where she trained in Mouse Genetics and Stem Cell Biology respectively. Dr Clark's laboratory studies the origins of the human germline with an emphasis on chromatin, epigenetic reprogramming and inheritance. Her lab uses CRISPR/Cas9, next generation sequencing, pluripotent stem cells and mouse models to meet her research goals. The laboratory's long-term research objective is to understand the fundamental principles of human germline cell formation towards the genesis of high quality gametes and the birth of healthy children.

Detailed Biography:

Amander Clark PhD is Professor and Chair of the Department of Molecular Cell and Developmental Biology at the University of California Los Angeles. She is a key member of the Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research and Co-Director of the Embryonic Stem Cell Derivation laboratory. She is also a member of the Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center and the Molecular Biology Institute. Dr Clark's group was the first to map DNA methylation reprogramming in the human germline during prenatal life at single base resolution using next generation sequencing.  This work exposed one of the most vulnerable time windows in human germline development, opening up new areas of investigation into environmental exposures during prenatal life.  Her lab was also the first  to use next generation sequencing to discriminate sex-specific transcriptional differences between male and female human prenatal germline cells, defining the advanced stages of human primordial germ cell development. Dr Clark’'s research is primarily funded by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, with previous awards from the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine, Fuller Fundation and the Iris Cantor UCLA Women's Health Center. Dr Clark is a recipient of Young Investigator Award from the Lance Armstrong, a Research and Career Development award from STOP Cancer, a Research award from the Concern Foundation and a Young Investigator Award from the International Society for Stem Cell Research. Dr Clark is a member of the Hinxton Group, an International consortium of scientists, ethicists and policy makers for the use of pluripotent stem cell derived gametes.
