Developmental and Regenerative Neurobiology

Parmar group

Homepage: https://www.regenerative-neurobiology.lu.se

 

Our research

My group works with translational stem cell biology. The focus of my research is to understand cell fate specification in the developing brain and in human neural progenitor cells using cell-based models of neuronal differentiation. Our current focus is to learn how to direct and efficiently drive controlled differentiation of human stem cells into subtype-specific neurons. We also develop technologies for direct conversion of human fibroblasts into functional and subtype-specific neurons in vitro, and the conversion of endogenous glia into neurons in vivo.
The ultimate aim is to develop these cells and technologies for use in brain repair, with focus on Parkinson’s disease.

Aims

  • Developing a stem cell based therapy for Parkinson’s Disease
  • Developing personalized cell therapies based in reprogrammed skin cells
  • Develop new strategies for brain repair based in in vivo cell reprogramming

Impact

New therapies and treatments for neurological disorders with focus on Parkinson’s Disease
