Understanding and controlling cell reprogramming

Professor Jose Polo and Dr Anja Knaupp

Professor Jose Polo is a group head at the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute and at the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute (ARMI), Monash University.

The Polo group is interested in the transcriptional and epigenetic mechanisms that govern cell identity and cell fate. It has a particular focus on pluripotency and the reprogramming of somatic cells into induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells and other mature cell types.
