The Zeltner lab has three main research interests, with the common goal to advance the understanding of human disorders and find novel treatments. We are using human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) to generate cell types specifically affected in disorders of the peripheral nervous system (PNS). These cells are utilized to establish human in vitro disease models to gain molecular mechanistic insight into the diseases.
