Sareen Laboratory

The Sareen laboratory uses stem cells to model diseases and explore tomorrow’s therapeutics. By differentiating stem cells into mature cells such as motor neurons, gastric organoids, and pancreatic beta-islets, we study the cellular signaling that underlies some of today’s most intractable diseases, including ALS, morbid obesity, and diabetes. Using gene editing, bioprinting, and other emerging tools, we seek to correct defects in a dish so that doctors can one day correct diseases in patients.

The Sareen Laboratory is affiliated with the Cedars-Sinai Department of Biomedical Sciences, Board of Governors Regenerative Medicine Institute and Brain Program.
