We are deriving a variety of human pluripotent stem cells for different purposes
Haploid human pluripotent stem cells contain just 23 chromosomes and are useful for genetic screening.
Stem cells derived by somatic cell nuclear transfer are patient matched, and can provide a source of autologous cells for cell replacement. We are interested in using this approach for the treatment of diabetes.
Somatic cell nuclear transfer involves the removal of the egg DNA (spindle), followed by the transfer of a the genome of a somatic cell.
