We bring together proven cell models and expertise in cardiovascular, neurological and immune cell biology. To keep building our expertise and infrastructure, our scientsts are continuously doing research to find new ways to differentiate, manufacture and charactarize iPSC-derived cell models for Drug Discovery and Cell Therapy. On this page, you will find our key publications.
