We are a laboratory in the University of Colorado Department of Medicine Division of Cardiology.
Our laboratory uses genomics, proteomics, and bioinformatics approaches to understand basic cellular processes in human induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) models. Human iPSCs can be directed to differentiate into different types of cells in the body including heart, muscle, and vascular cells, therefore providing a powerful in vitro model to probe cell biology under different developmental and stress response scenarios. Currently we are working on two projects in the areas of cellular communication and protein homeostasis:
Protocol to extract biomolecules from cryopreserved hiPSC vials published in Current Protocol.
