DR. CARLOS HUGO ESCOBAR SOTO. Medical Surgeon, Master’s in Molecular Biology and Biotechnology, and PhD in Biomedical Sciences. He is the author of multiple scientific articles related to the production and use of stem cells and has received numerous academic awards.
His doctoral thesis, honored by the Faculty of Medicine at the National University of Colombia, focused on the development of a reliable and safe technique for producing human stem cells suitable for therapeutic procedures.
His experience also includes his role as a postgraduate professor and former director of the Basic Sciences group at the University Foundation of Health Sciences (FUCS). Currently, he serves as the scientific director of TRUSTEM, a medical laboratory focused on the development and implementation of advanced medical therapies.
With his experience as a professor of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology for clinical-surgical medical specialties, he began his doctoral training, delving into the intricacies, needs, and therapeutic potential of stem cells to identify conceptual gaps that hinder achieving consistent therapeutic outcomes. He carried out research work that helped address some of the most important gaps identified previously.
Dr. Escobar ensures the proper handling of the produced adult stem cells and continues to actively seek new technical and technological optimizations to improve the therapeutic outcomes achieved through their use.
