Research Activities

My work aims at the development of a cell-based product with enhanced therapeutic features for myocardial regeneration through an integrative bioprocess approach. Mesenchymal stem/stromal cells (MSC) derived from the umbilical cord matrix (UCM) will be the focus of this work, since it represents a promising source of MSC for biomedical applications. I am interested in the establishment of an efficient platform for the expansion of UCM MSC under fully defined dynamic culture conditions. The impact of the expansion platform will be assessed on UCM MSC cytoskeletal organization/morphology, as well as on cell therapeutic potential.
