Malin Parmar


Dr. Malin Parmar is a Professor at Lund University and a New York Stem Cell Foundation – Robertson Investigator. Her research aims to understand cell fate specification in the developing brain and in human neural progenitor cells using cell-based models of neuronal differentiation. She talks about using assembloids to model the dopaminergic systemdirect reprogramming somatic cells into induced neurons, and developing ESC-derived dopamine progenitor cells to treat Parkinson’s disease.
