Research Activities

Research in the field of genetic engineered human Stem Cells for application in regenerative medicine. Using human Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSC) isolated from cord blood, bone marrow and adipose tissue, we aim to produce a safe human cell therapy protocol. Study and develop new non-viral gene delivery strategies to MSC and establishment of cell lines with therapeutic potential in cardiac regeneration.
