Human Pluripotent Stem Cells and Biomaterials Technology Platform

The "stem cells and biomaterials" network combines the best expertises on human pluripotent stem cells, biomaterials  and genomic analysis.

The aim is to provide technologies for induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells) and biomaterials that allow derivation of genetically defined disease models, their analysis and utilization of Finnish genetic expertise and materials.

Expertise at Division and Institute of Biotechnology:

  • Expertise in biomaterials desing, processing and cell testing for cell culture matrices and gene delivery nanoparticles
  • A multidisciplinary, highly competent research group


  • Gene and siRNA transfection protocols for customer´s cells
  • Custom made biomaterials multi-well plates for arrays for customers
  • Biomaterials based cell culture protocols for differentiation (Developmental biology, Institute of Biotechnology)
  • End-points are provided by the customer
  • Experiments are designed in collaboration with other relevant network partners and the customer
