Cell Engineering for tissue regeneration
Cell engineering has tremendous potential for regenerative medicine, disease modeling and drug screening. We are interested in understanding how biophysical and biochemical factors in the microenvironment regulate stem cell functions and cell reprogramming, and apply the knowledge and technologies to regenerative medicine applications. In our recent work, we engineer myogenic cells and biophysical factors for skeletal muscle regeneration by using approaches such as drug delivery, stem cell transplantation and wireless electrical stimulations. Our findings will lead to the development of new therapies for diseases and tissue injury.
