Project Summary:

Using the extensive biobank of human induced pluripotent stem cells (n > 250) housed within the Mayo Clinic Center for Regenerative Medicine Biotrust, our goal is to develop a technical platform for the screening of novel drugs as well as drug libraries. By capitalizing on this extensive, stem cell-based resource, we aim to develop novel therapeutic options for Minnesota's patient population.
