Development and regeneration are two essential processes that help maintain life. I am interested in the molecular mechanisms that cause a single cell to develop into a fully functioning organism, especially the development of PGCs and reproductive systems. I intend to study how these mechanisms, along with the regeneration capacities of stem cells, can be applied as therapies for different disorders.
