Jane Synnergren is an Associate Professor at the University of Skövde, Sweden. She received her MSc in Computer Sciences from the University of Skövde in 2003 and started her graduate studies in bioinformatics in 2006. She recieved her PhD from University of Gothenburg in 2010. Her research interest is gene regulatory mechanisms that are important for stem cell differentiation. Working in close collaboration with the stem cell industry and the pharmaceutical industry she performs global expression studies of human pluripotent stem cells during their differentiation towards functional cell types, with a particular focus on heart-, liver- and neural cells. Results from her research have revealed gene expression patterns during the early phases of differentiation with potential importance for determining the fate of the stem cell. Results from recent studies have indicated important roles for miRNAs in the control of diverse aspects of heart formation and cardiac function. Her most recent research has been focused on identification of transcriptional biomarkers for toxic responses using hPSCs. She also performs research on epigenetic changes in hPSCs.
