About Stem Cells and Regenerative Biology Lab

Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are the leading cause of mortality and morbidity globally. So understanding, managing, and preventing CVDs is a primary unmet medical need. We are working at the interface of interdisciplinary domains, stem cell biology, immunology, and bioengineering to produce novel therapeutic strategies against CVDs.




Two primary research directions of the group are:

  • Immune Regulation of Cardiac Regeneration
    Injury in an adult heart leads to the loss of functional cardiomyocytes (the beating cells). The loss of cells triggers an immune response, which regulates the regenerative response...
  • Molecular Regulators of Cardiac Calcification
    Aging, injury, and metabolic diseases can lead to calcification in the cardiovascular system. Calcification is the abnormal deposition of a bony matrix in soft tissue that can cause a mechanical or electrical block in the conduction system of the heart. The blockage can disrupt the smooth propagation of electric impulses leading to arrhythmias. Calcification is known to be an active cell-mediated process where bone-forming cells (osteoblast progenitors) mature and differentiate to induce mineralization...
