Objectives
1.To assess therapeutic potential of human ESC/iPSC-MSCs for vascular and neural regeneration 2.To examine two important therapeutic mechanisms of human ESC/iPSC-MSCs: cell differentiation and secretions 3.To provide a mass MSC production service. We believe the success of this project will not only provide invaluable MSC resources for tissue regeneration, but also offer a service platform for industrial application .
