Profile Picture

Stem cell transplantation and tissue engineering hold great promise in regenerative medicine. However, engrafting stem cells and generating tissues with stable vascular beds remain major challenges. Our laboratory is interested in understanding mechanisms of vascular network formation and stem cell engraftment using human stem and progenitor cells. Our long-term goal is to develop novel therapeutic strategies in regenerative medicine. Current projects in the lab are focused on:

1) Endothelial progenitor cell biology and therapeutic potential
2) Bioengineering vascular networks
3) Genetically-engineered vasculature for drug delivery

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
