gene expression in embryonic stem cell.
“Discovery motivates and drives me. As a scientist, life can never be boring, and
it can only be boring when creativity is not present”

He works mainly on cardiomyocytes from embryonic stem cell and especially in the
area of cardiac heart muscle repair.
“One needs lots of persistent to get there where one wang to go. It is very exciting
to fiddle the known with the unknown.”

Vidoe coutersy of Dr Robert Zweigerdt. It showsclusters of early cardiomyocytes
derived from embryonic stem cell contracting. This can potentially be used for cell-based
therapy of damaged cardiac tissues
