About Our Guest
GIOSTAR was founded with the goal of “delivering the most advanced, expensive, and elite science to the masses” by Dr. Anand Srivastava and Deven Patel. For more than two decades, “Dr. Anand” (as he is known by colleagues) has played an integral role in developing stem cell research programs at University of California San Diego (UCSD), Salk Institute of Biological Studies, and several other leading institutions.
Dr. Anand Srivastava boasts several accomplishments, including:
- sequencing of more than 20 genes in the Japanese flounder, to better understand genetic evolution of mammals
- demonstration in the lab of the potential of generating blood cells from stem cells – a finding that may assist in the development of treatment for several blood-related diseases
He has received numerous accolades for his ground-breaking research, including “Best in Business” Certificate of Recognition, and the Japan International Science and Technology Exchange Center (JISTEC) Award.
