Research Statement

Cellular reprogramming allows for the generation of a self-renewing and patient-specific cell source for drug discovery, cell therapies, and regenerative medicine through the generation of human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs). hiPSCs can grow indefinitely in culture and retain the ability to mature into any cell type of the human body.

By bringing together stem cell biology, genome engineering and biomaterials expertise, the Saha lab generates new tools for use with hiPSCs to ask unique questions about human biology and disease.
