The research profile of the Medizinische Klinik B für Gastroenterologie und Hepatologie (Med B) at the Universitätsklinikum Münster (UKM) has a focus on the isolation and characterization of adult stem cells and iPSCs. The differentiation of stem cells, in particular to hepatocyte-like cells (HLCs), is used for investigation of molecular, disease-specific pathogenesis. Cell models of rare monogenic inherited diseases serve to improve diagnosis/monitoring and could be valuable for identification of novel drugs and to plan clinical trials. The work is centered on basic scientific research, clinical demands and personalized medicine.
