RESEARCH ABSTRACT

 

As a research scientist with clinical experience in internal medicine and cardiology, I have chosen to focus on gaining knowledge on ischemic organ injury. Our laboratory's area of focus is to understand wound healing/tissue regeneration after ischemic damage and the long-term impacts of obesity/diabetes on the immune system.

We currently focus on the following interdependent projects:

  1. Impact of bone marrow stem cell dysfuction on tissue regeneration
  2. Mechanism of long-term immune memory induced by obesity/diabetes/metabolic syndrome
  3. Innate immune regulation by dynamic leukocyte trafficking to/from hamatopoietic organ
