Thematic Areas of Research Focus

Cell Therapy

  • Cell therapy involves the transplantation or administration of living cells to replace or repair damaged tissues or organs in the body.
  • These cells can be derived from various sources such as embryonic stem cells, adult stem cells, or induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs).
  • Cell therapy holds promise for treating a wide range of diseases and conditions, including cancer, cardiovascular diseases, neurodegenerative disorders, and autoimmune diseases.

Antibody Therapy

  • Antibody therapy, also known as immunotherapy, involves the use of antibodies to target specific molecules or cells in the body.
  • Monoclonal antibodies, which are engineered to bind to specific targets, are commonly used in antibody therapy.
  • Antibody therapy can be used to treat various diseases, including cancer, autoimmune disorders, and infectious diseases, by modulating the immune response or blocking specific signaling pathways.

Gene Therapy

  • Gene therapy aims to treat or prevent diseases by modifying or correcting the genetic code of an individual’s cells.
  • This can involve introducing new genes, repairing faulty genes, or regulating gene expression.
  • Gene therapy has the potential to treat a wide range of genetic disorders, including inherited diseases, as well as certain types of cancer and infectious diseases.

Drug Discovery

  • Drug discovery is the process of identifying and developing new medications to treat or prevent diseases.
  • It involves various stages, including target identification, compound screening, lead optimization, preclinical testing, and clinical trials.
  • Advances in drug discovery technologies, such as high-throughput screening, computational modeling, and genomic analysis, have accelerated the development of new drugs.

Personalized Medicine

  • Personalized medicine aims to tailor medical treatments to individual patients based on their unique genetic makeup, biomarkers, lifestyle, and environmental factors.
  • It involves using diagnostic tests to identify patient-specific characteristics and optimize treatment strategies.
  • Personalized medicine has the potential to improve treatment outcomes, reduce adverse effects, and optimize healthcare resource utilization.

Vector Engineering

  • Vector engineering involves the design and optimization of viral or non-viral vectors for delivering therapeutic genes, drugs, or other molecules into target cells.
  • Viral vectors, such as adenoviruses, lentiviruses, and adeno-associated viruses (AAVs), are commonly used in gene therapy to deliver therapeutic genes into host cells.
  • Non-viral vectors, such as liposomes, nanoparticles, and synthetic polymers, offer alternative delivery systems with reduced immunogenicity and safety concerns.

Regenerative Medicine

  • Regenerative medicine aims to restore or replace damaged tissues or organs in the body through the use of stem cells, tissue engineering, and other biological therapies.
  • It holds promise for treating a wide range of conditions, including tissue injuries, degenerative diseases, and organ failure.
  • Regenerative medicine approaches include stem cell transplantation, tissue engineering constructs, and growth factor therapies to stimulate tissue regeneration and repair.
