Stem Cell Biotechnology

Dr Earl Prinsloo's research focuses on the basic and applied sides of stem cell biology. Interests include the role of mitochondria in stem cell biology and the directed differentiation of stem cells into defined cell types. Stem cells hold great promise for the future of regenerative medicine. Understanding the regulatory balance that maintains stem cell self-renewal and differentiation will allow for the biotechnological exploitation of pluripotent stem cells. Dr Prinsloo believes in a systems biology approach to answering research questions using in silico, in vitro and ex vivo methods.
