In-depth investigation of the proceses underlying human embryonic stem cellsmaintenance and differentiation by advanced quantitative proteomics

Project: Research

Project Details


Stem cells, and in particular human embryonic stem cells (hESCs), have drawn enormousattention due to their ability to differentiate into any cell type. This makes hESCs an idealsystem to study cellular differentiation as well as highly relevant for regenerative medicine.Before hESC can be safely used for transplantation into humans, we need to develop athorough understanding of the mechanisms maintaining the undifferentiated pluripotentstate and those guiding differentiation into specific lineages.
