Personal profile

Research Interests

Understanding the epigenetic regulation of stem cell maintenance and tissue differentiation. We leverage human skin as the primary research platform,  which integrates the strength of rapid genetic characterization together with high-throughput genomic and proteomic approaches. The long-term goal of our group is to elucidate the gene regulatory networks underlying tissue regeneration, and to provide new insights for human disease therapies. ​
