Engineering Leukocytes Generated from Human iPS Cells to Treat Human Disease

This project could lead to groundbreaking new clinical interventions for patients with neutropenia (an abnormally low level of neutrophils, a common type of white blood cell), antibiotic resistant infections, diabetes, autoimmune disease, cardiovascular disease, and cancer. It relies on the development of cutting-edge techniques for generating neutrophils and macrophages from induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells […]
