Biography

 

Research Interest:

CCME Human Mesenchymal Stem Cell (MSC) Bank:

MSCs have become one of the most studied stem cells, especially toward the healing of diseased and damaged tissues and organs. I am working on adult MSCs derived from human bone marrow and adipose tissue to build up a stem cell bank. MSCs from each patient will be cultured and characterized by cell differentiation (chondrogenesis, osteogenesis and adipogenesis), colony forming units (CFU), gene expression markers, and cell sorting, etc… And information is kept in the database to guide researchers to select the proper donors for their downstream studies.
