The Stem Cell Engineering Center (SCEC) was established in 2010 to foster the growth of the stem cell research community at Georgia Tech.
The engineering of stem cells is a relatively new field that aims to procure novel developments in stem cell therapies, treatment options and diagnostics by manipulating elements of stem cells that have been previously difficult to control. This research aims to study cellular differentiation and phenotype analysis of stem cells and non-destructive bioanalytical techniques to measure specific stem cell properties.
1) Innovate novel approaches to rapidly accelerate the translation of stem cell science discoveries into cellular and molecular therapies and in vitro diagnostic platforms.
2) Develop technologies that provide feedback to enhance & expedite basic stem cell research discoveries.
The 10 graduate students are discussing stem cell population analysis, when it’s time. Before they can continue the discussion, Todd McDevitt, the instructor, has to do one thing — turn on the TV.
The University System of Georgia Board of Regents has approved the appointment of Krishnendu (Krish) Roy and Todd McDevitt to Carol Ann and David D. Flanagan Faculty Professorships in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering.
A separation technique based on adhesive force differences could advance stem cell therapies.
