Understanding Endometriosis: Generation of induced Pluripotent Stem Cells from Endometriosis Patients

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

Endometriosis is a debilitating disease that causes chronic pain and infertility. Current treatments are limited and ineffective and there is still much to be learned about the disease. Our proposed study to generate iPS cells specifically from women with endometriosis will be the first of its kind, giving us a tool to understand how genetic predispositions can drive the disease. Endometriosis-based iPS cells will be used to differentiate into endometrial stromal cells and molecular and physiological parameters will be measured. This innovative system can be used for drug development in future studies
