Research project: Mahajan: Multimodal Label-Free Imaging for Stem Cell Plasticity and Skeletal Regeneration

Currently Active: 
Yes

The use of stem cells for cell-based therapies is currently one of the most exciting and promising areas for disease treatment and reparative medicine.

Controlled modification of stem cell phenotype could provide significant therapeutic potential in regenerative medicine, with the potential to permanently repopulate a host with stem cells and their progeny. This project will examine stem cell plasticity and differentiation, unique stem cell- material and engineering strategies to generate musculoskeletal tissue and evaluate them using innovative state-of-the-art multimodal label-free imaging approaches.
