Dr Rajneesh Verma has done his schooling from India and then went to Australia for further studies. He did Bachelors in Applied Science (Biotechnology) from Victoria University, Melbourne, after that he pursued Masters in Agriculture, Plant Molecular Biology from The University of Sydney and then did his Doctor of Philosophy (Ph D). Dr. Rajneesh Verma is driven by his passion for helping researchers, physicians and scientists to change the world through stem cell medicine. Dedicated to creating critical organizational systems that ensure success, he is an expert in the field of specialized marketing focused on Biotechnology, Life Sciences, and Healthcare development. Dr. Verma is a well renowned Reproductive Bio-technologist and a stem cell Scientist from Monash University, Melbourne (Australia). In 2011, he was the First one in the world to generate Induced pluripotent Stem Cells (iPSC) of wild cats namely, Snow Leopard, Bengal Tiger, Jaguar and Serval. This work was later recognized by the World Stem Cell Society of Regenerative Medicine in Milan (Italy) and was published as a chapter in Springer July 2014. He was a visiting Professor and Stem Cell Program Leader in Livestock and Endangered species, Mahidol University (Thailand) and Adjunct Senior Lecturer in Monash Institute of Medical Research, Australia. He is working as Program Specific Researcher, CIRA, Kyoto (Koji Eto group).

Stem cells are biological cells that can differentiate into other types of cells and can divide to produce more of the same type of stem cells. They are found in multicellular organisms. Stem cells are a class of undifferentiated cells that are able to differentiate into specialized cell types. Commonly, stem cells come from two main sources: Embryos formed during the blastocyst phase of embryological development (embryonic stem cells) and adult tissue (adult stem cells).
"I m Reproductive Bio-technologist and a stem cell Scientist from Monash University, Melbourne (Australia). In 2011, I was the First one in the world to generate Induced pluripotent Stem Cells (iPSC) of wild cats namely, Snow Leopard, Bengal Tiger, Jaguar and Serval. Having worked on various projects in the field of stem cells, in 2017, I joined CIRA, Kyoto (Koji Eto group) as a Program Researcher."
