New Stem Cell Technology

CTSCB aims to develop new human cell lineage knowledge to optimize protocols for efficient generation of specific cell types from human Expanded Potential Stem Cells (EPSCs).

  • New technology relevant to stem cells with totipotency features
  • Molecular determinants in direct differentiation of expanded potential stem cells (EPSCs) to functional cells
  • Genome editing of EPSCs and new genome editing techniques and applications in ES cells
  • Protein engineering and direct molecular evolution
