Research Interests

My research focuses on using human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) to model central nervous system (CNS) development and diseases. Specifically, by differentiating and genetically manipulating hESCs and iPSCs, I am trying to dissect the developmental pathways and the corresponding pathogenesis in the glial lineage. My long-term goal is to identify therapeutic targets for the treatment of CNS injury and neurodegenerative diseases.
