Research
Our laboratory currently focuses on three major areas:
1) Stem cell interaction with its microenvironment during tissue regeneration, cancer progression, and metastasis,
with a particular emphasis on the Hedgehog signaling pathway (and other developmental pathways),
2) Novel strategy for regenerative medicine with a focus on in vivo tissue reprogramming and genome engineering, and
3) Personalized medicine to develop precise therapeutic intervention for individual cancer patients
with genetic variability using 3-dimensional in vitro cancer model.
To this end, we uses various in vitro/in vivo approaches including mouse genetics and stem cell organoid culture.
