Area of Specialization
Development of alternatives to laboratory animals for biomedical research using stem cells and immortalized cells of human and animal origin
Current R&D/S&T Activities

Applicability of plasticity and pluripotential potential of stem cells derived from human cord blood :

Ø  Developing 2D human brain-specific high throughput screening tool to assess the neurotoxicity and developmental neurotoxicity potential of drugs / chemicals using human cord blood stem cells 

Ø  Developing stem cell-derived 3D neuronal niche organoid as model system to study the neurotoxicity / developmental neurotoxicity of drugs / chemicals

Ø   Developing low-density genome / proteome array as biomarkers to characterize the stage-specific landmarks to the chemical / drug induced developmental neurotoxicity

Ø   Developing  in vitro  universal gene chip as predictive tool for the toxic potential of drugs / chemicals at organ level in one go
