Understanding the identity of the amniotic fluid stem cells

Project description

Unravelling the therapeutic potential of amniotic fluid stem cells

Amniotic fluid, known for its trophic and supportive role in embryonic development, contains a small population of cells known as amniotic fluid stem cells (AFSCs). Although these cells are exploited for prenatal diagnostic purposes, little is known about their origin or role. The scope of the EU-funded AmnioticID project is to determine the lineage identity of these cells and their role in development using next generation sequencing and in vivo lineage tracing approaches. Results will pave the way for the isolation and expansion of these cells for regenerative medicine strategies.
