Cardiac derived stem-like cells for heart repair

Cardiac Progenitor cells (CPCs) are resident stem cells of the heart. Preclinical and Clinical studies provide evidence towards a beneficial role of CPCs for improvement of cardiac structure and function. The goal of this project;

  • Understand the basic molecular and cellular function of CPCs isolated and expanded in culture from mouse and human hearts

  • Determine the effect of age and disease on CPC morphological and functional characteristics.

  • Finally, we are currently developing strategies to enhances CPC based therapies to overcome limitations and challenges to
