Our main research focus is to identify in vivo properties of mesenchymal stem and progenitor cells by using multi-color flow cytometry, transgenic mouse models and human materials. Specifically, we aim to, 1). identify the developmental hierarchy of mesenchymal cells from bone marrow in order to precisely define their role in tissue homeostasis and diseases. 2). understand homing mechanisms of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) in order to develop better MSC-based therapeutic strategies in regenerative medicine.
