Research Interests:

We are studying human heart development and disease using the human pluripotent stem cell model system. To facilitate that, my lab has specialized in developmental biology-based differentiation strategies. Our current research focuses on cardiac pacemaker cells and their application for in vitro disease modeling and cell therapies as biological pacemaker.
