Plasticell collab on stem cell with Singapore universities

Genome editing tech will insert functional multi-transgene cassettes into specific loci of human stem cell lines

Developer of stem cell technologies and cell-based therapies, Plasticell, has signed agreements with the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) and the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) to progress its therapeutic stem cell pipeline.

Separate agreements with the two Singapore research centres encompass technology licensing, collaborative research and scientific exchange visits.

Plasticell will initially collaborate with the laboratories of Peter Dröge (School of Biological Sciences, NTU) and Farid Ghadessy (p53Lab, A*STAR).

They will apply genome editing technology to insert functional multi-transgene cassettes into specific loci of human stem cell lines.

The engineered lines will be used by Plasticell in multiple projects focused on precisely directed stem cell differentiation, phenotypic screening for drug discovery and in next-generation immuno-oncology applications.
