Professor Ed Stanley

 - Partner Investigator

Research focus: Genetic manipulation of pluripotent stem cells, analysis of stem cell-derived beta cells, making blood cells and stem cell models of human disease

Ed Stanley heads the Stem Cell Technology Laboratory at the Murdoch Childrens Research Institute. His laboratory is investigating human pluripotent stem cell (PSC) genetic modification technologies and in vitro differentiation towards blood, thymus, lung and pancreatic lineages. The goal of the laboratory is to use stem cell differentiation systems to understand human development, to generate tools for drug discovery, and to provide a source of cells for future medical applications.
