Research

Our work is directed towards the generation of induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells as disease models, with a particular emphasis on the study of mental disorders. Our research goals also include the scale-up of stem cells in spinners flasks in order to facilitate efficient propagation and high-throughput screening.
