Optimization of Stem cell Therapy for degenerative Epithelial and Muscle Diseases
OptiStem is an EU-funded research project that brings together stem cell biologists and clinical experts from across Europe investigating stem cells in skeletal muscle and epithelia. OptiStem combines basic research about stem cells with pre-clinical work and clinical trials. All these areas of research are vital to understand how to use stem cells in the fight against disease. It will be investigated how stem cells could be used to treat degenerative diseases that damage skeletal muscle or epithelia such as skin or the surface of the eye.
