To generate functional tissue from stem cells in order to reveal new rules governing organ formation and accelerate progress on regenerative therapeutics.
Research in the Zandstra Laboratory is focused on the generation of functional tissue from somatic and pluripotent stem cells. Our quantitative, technology-driven approach strives to gain new insights into fundamental mechanisms that control stem cell fate and to develop robust technologies for the propagation of stem cells and their derivatives. We will accomplish this based on 4 steps:
Computational modeling of blood development
Generate custom microenvironments
Generation of synthetic networks
Develop new therapies for blood disease
