Research Interests

My research interest lies in understanding stem cell biology and its application in musculoskeletal tissue repair and regeneration. The main focus of my research is to define the mechanism of relative gene expression and regulation in healing and regeneration of injured musculoskeletal tissue. Currently, one of the focuses of my research is on therapeutic application of stem cells in tendon-bone insertion injury and the molecular mechanism of tendon-bone insertion regeneration. I am also interesting in therapeutic application of Pigment Epithelium Derived Factor on osteoporosis and bone fracture healing.
