There are several projects and collaborations that the Stem Cell Research Facility are developing in addition to providing our services.
Direct conversion of human fibroblasts to induced neurons (ihNs)
Reprogramming via chemicals
hPSC differentiation to various neural tissues
Obtain efficient Homology Directed Repair (HDR) by modifying traditional protocols
Inducible gene knockout/SNP induction in hPSCs
Improve knock-in efficiency in hPSCs through chemical screening
Dr. Zhou and the Stem Cell Research Facility welcomes collaboration with investigators of all levels from SKI, the Tri-institutes and other institutions.
