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 pluripotency 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 assess the chemical/drug induced developmental neurotoxicity

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