Our laboratory is part of the Department of Orthopedic Surgery in the Stanford School of Medicine. We are affiliated with the Child Health Research Institute, Bio X and the Cancer Biology Program. Our research interests are driven towards understanding the mechanisms that govern and reprogram stem cell fate during development, regeneration and disease. The long-term goal is to translate these fundamental principles towards musculoskeletal repair and regeneration in the clinic.
