Research Statement

Our goal is to understand, model, and recapitulate in vitro the instructive signals utilized by human embryos to pattern tissue-specific differentiation of pluripotent stem cells, and apply this knowledge towards bioengineering human stem cell-derived microphysiological system, organoids, and other regenerative therapeutic strategies. Currently, we primarily focus on generating cells, tissues, and organoid-based screening platforms of the central nervous system.
