Bio

We use human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSC) to understand the role of the genome in influencing drug efficacy and side effects such as chemotherapy-induced cardiotoxicity. We are also interested in developing new modalities for prospectively testing drug efficacy and toxicity, discovering cardioprotectants, cardiac regenerative medicine, and hiPSC models of cancer.

Along with the hiPSC model, we use a combination of whole genome sequencing, automation and robotics, high-throughput drug...[Read full text]
