The Truong lab investigates the possibilities of our genomes by writing in synthetic DNA hundreds of kilobases at a time.


This capability will enable us to build sophisticated cellular programs —  arming our cells with functionalities to perhaps fight cancer, autoimmune disease, neurodegeneration, or age-related diseases.


We engineer human pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), the

start of all other cells. We then coax them

into immune or neural cells as living therapies

and for regenerative medicine.

We aspire to codify the grammar

and language of cellular

communication and


Make better, safer and more accessible cell therapies and regenerative medicines by manipulating the genome.
