EPSCs for Genomic Medicine of Immune Disease

Apply EPSCs technology to study immunological disorders  focusing on autoimmunity and primary immunodeficiency, and develop drug target discovery for immunological disorders

  • Using somatic cells from patients and healthy subjects for EPSC cell lines generation
  • Transduce normal human EPSC cell lines with disease-associated genetic variants
  • Differentiation of immune cells and tissue organoids from patient and isogenic EPSC cell lines for modelling disease pathogenesis and drug screening
