RESEARCH:

Mechanisms of gastro-intestinal stem cells


EDUCATION:

Postdoctoral Fellow: Dana-Farber Cancer Institute / Harvard University
Ph.D.: Cornell University / Sloan-Kettering Institute
M.Sc.: University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign                                                                                                                 B.Sc.: Sungkyunkwan University


FIELDS OF INTEREST:

  • Genetic Models of Development and Disease
  • Cellular & Molecular Structure & Function

RESEARCH INTERESTS:

We are interested in the mechanisms of stem cell renewal and differentiation and their perturbation in diseases such as cancer. Using the gut as a model system and applying mouse genetics, epigenomics and gut organoid cultures, we investigate signaling, chromatin modification and the transcriptional basis of gastrointestinal stem cells.
