We are a gene regulation and editing lab, focusing on enhancer mediated genetic and epigenetic regulation of gene expression in development and diseases for molecular targets that can be harnessed to improve human health and agronomic traits! Our research employs human pluripotent stem cells and animals as model system, integrates methodologies from molecular biotechnology, Genetic, Epigenetics together with improved genome editing toolkit for strategies to treat neuromuscular disorders and advance meat science.
