    About This Project

    The use of stem cells is currently limited by issues including the risk of tumor formation or undesired immune responses. However, stem cells represent a promising therapeutic approach for several diseases. Stem cells release round packets called Extracellular vesicles (EVs) which carry and deliver specific messages to target cells. We believe that these extracellular stem cell vesicles deliver important regenerative signals to liver cells, which may counter the progression of liver diseases.
