NSF award to stem cells engineering

From a simple blood draw, Krishanu Saha, a researcher in WID’s BIONATES research group and assistant professor of biomedical engineering, could enable doctors to create stem cells to develop drugs personalized to their patients.

As part of his $400,000 National Science Foundation CAREER Award over the next five years, Saha will focus on improving the process to directly evolve DNA sequences and proteins in human stem cells.

Stem cells have the potential to develop into many different cell types, which makes them ideal for a variety of medical research projects.

The evolution of synthetic DNA sequences in human stem cells could catalyze
