Murphy Lab Awarded Amyloidosis Foundation Grant

“Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell Modeling of Human Hereditary Amyloidosis”
This project will generate a new form of stem cells that start out as skin or blood cells but are then reprogrammed into cells that have the ability to become any type of tissue in the body. These stem cells will be utilized to study a genetic disease through the directed differentiation of these cells in vitro in order to recapitulate the outcome of the disease. Possible benefits of this research are new ways to study treatments for genetic diseases such as familial amyloidosis.
