Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine

preview image

Researchers in this area are focused on the basic mechanisms controlling (1) embryonic stem (ES) cells, as well as adult stem cell growth, and induced pluripotent stem cells and (2) tissue regeneration.

Specific projects include eye, heart, kidney, and liver regeneration, genetic and epigenetic mechanisms that regulate ES cell differentiation, control of the cell cycle in hematopoietic progenitor cells and muscle stem cells, and regulation of gene expression in germ stem cells.
