The Stem Cell research unit of Eijkman Institute for Molecular Biology is a newly-developed unit equipped with state-of-the-art laboratory focusing on stem cell research.

The activities include the isolation and characterization of adult stem cells and also the generation of induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) from different tissues. The aim of this research are to utilize those cells in disease modelling and later to investigate their potential in therapeutic application for various degenerative and genetic diseases in Indonesia.
