My connections

ips-derived sensory neurons

Myelinating co-culture

Post doctoral research fellow

Biography

My research interests are in the fields of inherited causes of pain and the myelination of peripheral neurons.

I am using a recently developed approach to differentiate induced pluripotent stem cells (ipsc) into sensory neurons. This technique is then used to investigate genetically acquired pain disorders in culture based assays. I am also working on establishing myelinating cocultures using human ipsc-derived neurons with the aim to use these to understand the pathophysiology of demyelinating neuropathies.
