1. New Biomaterials

Biomaterials play an imperative role in regenerative medicine, serving as vectors or scaffolds. Based on biological studies, we will design new biomaterials to create desirable biochemical and biophysical cues to alter cell fate in vitro or in situ to achieve more effective and practical therapeutic outcomes.

2. Gene Editing & Gene Therapy

Gene editing and gene therapy are revolutionized biotechnologies that offer powerful tools to engineer cell fate and function for regenerative medicine, disease modeling, drug discovery, and beyond. We will use these techniques to repair or regenerate damaged tissues.

3. Immunoengineering & Immunotherapeutics

Immunoengineering is a rapidly growing field for disease therapies and regeneration medicine. To better understand the dynamics of the immune system and enhance the efficacy of current immunotherapeutics in treating autoimmune diseases and tissue regeneration, we will apply gene-editing tools, cell engineering techniques, and materials science techniques to modulate the immune system and boost cardiovascular and muscle tissue repair, etc.

4. Stem cell & Regeneration Medicine

Both adult and embryonic stem cells have demonstrated significant potential in regenerative medicine. However, there is still much to learn about how these cells can repair damaged tissues. We will apply new biomaterials to leverage stem cell-based therapies and understand the mechanisms of stem cell behaviors.
