Fat Stem Cells Functions
Adipose stem cells are interesting both in relation to human pandemic obesity and as dispensible source of multipotent mesenchymal stem cells in regenerative medicine.

About the group
Our laboratory is interested in elucidating functional aspects of mesenchymal stem cells from adipose tissue in mice, with particular emphasis on their function after tissue implantation for regenerative and reconstructive purposes. We want to understand how adult stem cells may influence inflammatory processes in mice.
We combine animal disease models in transgenic mice with state-of-art in vivo imaging of labelled stem cells to address such issues.
