Cellular reprogramming and induced pluripotent stem cells offer a great promise for use in regenerative medicine, by potentially supporting the growth of healthy or diseased cells and tissues derived from an individual’s own cells. In long term, this technology may allow scientists to transfer complex human diseases into Petri dishes in order to elucidate disease mechanisms and thus will be a first step toward developing therapies. In our research group, we try explore the applications of cellular reprogramming in cancer and regenerative medicine. Specific research areas include:

- Cancer cell reprogramming as a treatment or disease-modelling technology.
- Development of novel technologies or nanomaterials for directing cell fate.
- Epigenetic reprogramming and how it can be used in different disease conditions.
- In vivo cellular reprogramming and its applications in regenerative medicine
