Research expertise in MIRM is geared towards enabling a plethora of topics ranging from cancers, neurodegeneration, cardiovascular diseases, immunobiology and diabetes. Development of stem cell derived disease specific models are used to study disease stages. Simple, durable and cost intensive strategies for developing disease models are being developed using adult stem cells. Unique targets for drug resistant cancer stem cells are also being developed. Cancer stem cell based drug screening platform are being developed to target the drug resistant and metastatic cancer cells. In addition, immunobiology applications of stem cells, stem cell derived therapeutics such as exosomes, induced pluripotent stem cell disease models are also areas of active development for clinical applications.
