Research Interests

My lab works on biological mechanisms of adult stem cells, embryonic stem cells, and induced pluripotent stem cells. We use a combination of gene profiling, tissue engineering, physiological testing, and molecular imaging technologies to better understand stem cell biology in vitro and in vivo. For adult stem cells, we are interested in monitoring stem cell survival, proliferation, and differentiation. For ESC, we are currently studying their tumorigenicity, immunogenicity, and differentiation. For iPSC, we are working on novel derivation techniques. We also work on development of novel vectors and therapeutic genes for cardiovascular gene therapy applications.
