Research Activities

My research is focused on the development of robust and cost-effective protocols for human pluripotent stem cells expansion (hPSC), differentiation and purification. Accounting for the growing importance of purification methods in hPSC-derived cells production, greater importance will be given to separation strategies - such as affinity chromatography with monolithic cryogels, magnetic activated cell sorting and microfluidic systems - to selective isolate relevant neural precursor populations.
