Stem cell transplantation and tissue engineering hold great promise in regenerative medicine. However, engrafting stem cells and generating tissues with stable vascular beds remain as 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 protein drug delivery
