About the Lab

Our laboratory studies basic and translational aspects of tissue regeneration. The lab's research program is closely intertwined with regenerative medicine. With foundations in muscle and cancer biology, we are investigating regenerative mechanisms including stem cell development and de-differentiation. By employing model organisms such as zebrafish and mouse and extending discoveries to human cells and tissues, we hope to gain fundamental insight that can be translated into clinical advances, most notably solving the structural and reconstructive problems of the limbs, face, and head, whether congenital or acquired.
