Professional History

Dario Fauza received MD and PhD degrees from the University of Sao Paulo, in Brazil, where he also attended internship and residencies in general and pediatric surgery. He then moved to the United States, over 20 years ago, where he completed his training in different clinical and postdoctoral fellowships, all at Children's Hospital Boston and Harvard Medical School. He is currently a staff member of Boston Children's Hospital’s Department of Surgery and Advanced Fetal Care Center, as well as an Associate Professor of Surgery at Harvard Medical School.

He has an extensive bibliography and is the recipient of multiple awards and honors in the United States and abroad. He has pioneered a number of cell-based strategies for the treatment of congenital anomalies, most prominently the notion of using select fetal cells to engineer a variety of tissue constructs applicable to the repair of various birth defects. He is widely recognized as having established fetal tissue engineering as a field within regenerative medicine, as well as having introduced other original strategies and methodologies for the repair of congenital anomalies both before and after birth.
