Tiziano Barberi, Ph.D.
Associate Professor | Southwest National Primate Research Center
Dr. Tiziano Barberi is a stem cell biologist working with human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs). The major goals of his lab are to develop technologies that lead to the generation of specialized cells derived from hPSCs for potential treatments of degenerative conditions and for the understanding of early human development (cell fate specification). In particular, he works on the derivation of mesodermal (skeletal muscle) and ectodermal (neural retina, cranial placode, neural crest) cells.
Related Diseases: Muscular dystrophy, retina degeneration and anosmia.
Techniques: FACS sorting, tissue culture, PCR, Immunocytochemistry, Western Blot, RNAseq, gene editing (CRISPR).
