The Zeltner lab’s main research interests have 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.

We are located on the second floor of the Center for Molecular Medicine (CMM) building, adjacent to the Complex Carbohydrate Research Center (CCRC) at the University of Georgia in Athens, Georgia, USA.

Our team welcomes humans from any background, gender, race, nationality, sexual orientation, gender identities/expression, ethnicity, age, ability ect.
