Stem Cells are Special
Yes, that is what we believe. Our focus is to understand the unique life of stem cells. We aim to gain a comprehensive understanding of the endogenously produced stem cell factors and their role in directing stemness in development and in cancer. Our research combines quantitative proteomics and high-resolution sequencing with cutting-edge stem cell and genetic engineering techniques. The ultimate aim is to boost the development of regenerative medicine and cancer therapies.
Human pluripotent stem cells are able to self-renew forever and differentiate into every cell type of the human body
Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells
Can be reprogrammed from somatic
Embryonic Stem Cells
Can be isolated from the inner cell mass of blastocyst-stage embryos
