The Faces of iPSpine

NTrans Techology
What is your team's main scientific expertise/contribution to the iPSpine project?

Virus-free modification of iPSCs with our iTOP technology.

With iTOP we can deliver native proteins in to cells using a natural cellular uptake pathway. We will further develop and optimize our​ iTOP technology to allow efficient intracellular delivery of gene- or epigenetic modifying enzymes into (differentiating) iPSCs.
