Ewa Carrier, MD, was born in Poland. Her medical training has been international in scope, including studies in Poland, Hungary, Italy, England, and the Unites States. Residency and research fellowships at Stanford University Medical Center, Children's Medical Center in Northern California, and the Division of Pediatric Transplant Program at the University of California San Francisco culminated in a clinical faculty position at the Department of Pediatrics at UCSF. She later moved to the University of California San Diego in 1998 to establish her own laboratory. She is currently associated with the Blood and Marrow Transplant Program at UCSD. Her laboratory is dedicated to studying the biology of stem cells and their ability to trans-differentiate and repair tissues. Dr. Carrier has developed clinical programs to transplant autoimmune diseases, such as lupus erythematosus and Crohn's disease, noting "I want to devote my life to treatment of various malignant and non-malignant diseases in the most non-toxic manner possible." Beyond her work, she has two children, a 16-year-old daughter who is a competitive diver and an 18-year-old son who plays basketball.
