Project description

Su Ji is part of the RESCUE COFUND PhD program at the Hubrecht Institue and the aim of her project is to understand cardiomyocyte function during heart disease, especially in genetic cardiomyopathies. To define new disease mechanisms and develop new therapeutic strategies, she generated human induced pluripotent stem cell reporter lines to perform a high throughput screening and identify drug targets that allow better cardiac integrity during myocardial degeneration.


Techniques: reporter iPSC lines, CRISPR/Cas9, cardiomyocyte differentiation, high-throughput screening
