Filippo Cipriani, PhD

Principal Scientist at The NYSCF Research Institute

2019 NYSCF – Druckenmiller Fellow


Dr. Cipriani’s research is focused on using stem cells to develop robust models of diabetes on a large scale, to capture how the disease affects diverse patient populations. By leveraging the NYSCF Global Stem Cell Array®, the NYSCF Research Institute’s automated platform for stem cell production, he will develop a fully automated approach for the generation of patient-specific, stem cell-derived pancreatic cells, minimizing experimental variation. This will enable robust, precise population-based disease modeling of diabetes, helping scientists understand how the disease varies across patients and what that means for their treatment.
