Professor Dr. Jens Schwamborn is an expert for stem cell biology and in vitro disease modelling. In particular he focused on the mechanisms that regulate neuronal differentiation. Furthermore, since about five years he is working on the in vitro modeling of Parkinson’s disease using human induced pluripotent stem cells. Over the last years he filed several patents and published more than 40 manuscripts. Some of his papers are published in the leading journals in the field including Cell, Cell Stem Cell, Stem Cell Reports and Nucleic Acids Research.
