My research interest is to understand how microenvironmental cues regulate stem/progenitor cell differentiation. Currently, my research is focusing on lung vascular SMC differentiation controlled by extracellular matrix properties: stiffness (biophysical property) and TGF-beta signaling (biochemical property). To examine this, I have utilized a decellularized lung scaffolds culture system and determine 3-D matrix signal on cell differentiation. In the long term, I hope that the information gathered using this approach will provide fundamental information necessary to understand the regeneration of the lung and to design more effective therapies.
