P.hd in Stem Cell Biology
The research focus is primarily on human embryonic stem cells and use them as a) tools for basic research; b) in vitro model for screening of ‘lead' molecules for developmental toxicity and c) cell-based therapies for various age related disorders. The group is also interested in cryopreservation of ovarian and testicular tissue biopsies for fertility conservation. This would ensure achievement of biological parenthood in individuals with gonadal insufficiency especially cancer survivors. Studies on germ cell maturation in vitro and transplantation studies are ongoing in animal models.
