Title: 'Identification of mouse and human resident and circulating endothelial stem cells'

Dr. Yoder’s research interests include identifying the origin and mechanisms of mobilization of circulating endothelial colony forming cells (ECFCs), identifying a method to directly program ECFCs from pluripotent stem cell-derived mesoderm precursors, and studying the biology of resident vascular endothelial stem cells. He has published over 300 peer-reviewed manuscripts, editorials, book chapters, and books. He received continuous NIH funding from 1997 until his retirement in 2018. He has mentored more than 80 undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and visiting scientists and all have attained science teaching, academic or industry research, or physician practice positions.
