Chuti Laowtammathron received his Ph.D. in Biotechnology from Suranaree University of Technology in 2009. During his Ph.D. study, he established non-human primate disease-specific embryonic stem cell lines and used them as a model to study Huntington’s disease progression. He continued his research career as a postdoctoral research fellow at the A*STAR Genome Institute of Singapore (GIS) for two years under the mentorship of Prof. Ng Huck Hui. He joined the SiSCR in October 2012 as a researcher. His current work focuses on establishment of human disease-specific stem cells, which aim to recapitulate disease pathology and understand the mechanism of disease progression in in vitro and in vivo models.
