… 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 iPS cells 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 is currently in the process of re-locating to the Helsinki Institute of Life Science (HiLIFE) at the University of Helsinki (UH), Finland, where we will officially start in June 2020. The group will be 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.

The lab is funded by:
