Stem cells and genetic engineering

Human stem cells have great potential for finding restoring damaged tissues throughout the body and speeding the drug discovery process. We are developing a combined approach of both the cells needed to restore the damaged area and using these cells in a Petri dish to discover new compounds to treat diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease. Through collaborations with others, including scientists at Georgia Tech and Emory, we are developing therapies and drug discovery tools.
