The Stem Cell Engineering Center at Georgia Tech is working to innovate novel approaches capable of rapidly accelerating the translation of stem cell science into cellular and molecular therapies, as well as in vitro diagnostic technologies.
Stem cells hold tremendous promise as a biological resource for regenerative medicine, pharmaceutical discovery and development, and cell-based diagnostic assays. However, transforming the potential of stem cells into viable biomedical technologies and commercial applications depends upon the development of efficient, robust, non-destructive and scalable strategies to control, assay and manufacture stem cells and stem cell-derived products.
The objectives of the SCEC research focus on differentiation and bioanalytical technologies, multi-scale phenotypic systems analysis, and bioprocessing efforts.
SCEC research labs are using non-destructive bioanalytical techniques like dielectrophoresis, mass spectroscopy and potentiometry to assess the state of the cell in one environment verses another. These techniques are used to measure cell Read More>>
SCEC research labs are developing methods to efficiently direct stem cell differentiation to specific lineages for the desired cell phenotype in a homogenous, reproducible and scalable manner. The SCEC labs using differentiation technologies Read More>>
SCEC research labs are exploring a systems based approach to integrate different levels of phenotypic measures to thoroughly describe the epigenetic, proteome, metabolome characteristics of a cell. The SCEC labs researching phenotypic analysis Read More>>
