Curriculum Research area
The role of non-coding RNAs in cell differentiation and their potential dysregulation in obesity. I have an expertise in isolating and differentiating mesenchymal stem cells from human muscle and fat biopsies, including brown fat. We use these cells as model systems to study disease dependent dedifferentiation and transdifferentiation mediated by non-coding RNAs.
