About Us

  • Understanding how cells and organs are generated during development and maintained by stem cells throughout life is a major cornerstone of regenerative medicine. This knowledge will enable us to replace damaged tissues and to help the body regenerate after injury. The Stem Cell Center at Helmholtz Zentrum München has the unique strength of combining stem cell research focused on different organs and developmental stages with leading expertise in cellular plasticity, epigenetics and disease models. This unique combination has led to breakthrough discoveries at the crossroads between disease models and repair, cellular plasticity and disease as well as reprogramming. With epigenetic factors being key regulators of fate restriction and plasticity, the Stem Cell Center will position itself at the interface linking disease states, plasticity and epigenetics, a distinctive feature of the Center.
