Design of novel stem cell technologies based on liquid-liquid interfaces
Liquid-liquid interfaces offer unique opportunities for the development of novel stem cell technologies. The absence of solid substrates allows bypassing some of the pitfalls associated with the culture of adherent cells on solid substrates, as is commonly done. My project focuses on the development of microdroplet technologies for the culture and screening of adherent stem cells, identifying parameters regulating the expansion of stem cells and their differentiation in defined lineages.
