… to the Kilpinen lab website!

We are interested in cellular genetics and the cellular basis of developmental and other brain-related disorders. We use human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) as models, and combine computational and experimental methods to study how genetic variation causes variability in cell phenotypes and contributes to differential susceptibility to diseases, both common and rare.

The lab has moved to the Helsinki Institute of Life Science (HiLIFE) at the University of Helsinki (UH), Finland in June 2020. The group is based at the Institute for Molecular Medicine Finland (FIMM) on the UH medical campus and work closely with the HiLIFE Neuroscience Center and the Faculty of Biological and Environmental Sciences. We will retain close links with both UCL and the Sanger Institute.
