Cellular Programming-icon

Cellular Programming

Cellular programming is a revolutionary technique that allows researchers to transform cells from one type to another in a manner previously thought impossible. Our approach is to use cellular programming technologies to make human stem cells that allow us to develop models for diseases which would otherwise be difficult to study in the human system.
