Understanding the role of adipose derived stem cells during lymphodema

Understanding the role of adipose derived stem cells during lymphodema

PhD project

It is becoming apparent that adipose derived stem cells (ADSC) may be beneficial during fat grafting. We would like to explore the use of ADSC in a mouse model of secondary lymphodema. This project will use a combination of genetics, metabolomics and proteomics to identify the active components of ADSC that may be beneficial in resolving secondary lymphodema.
