Current Research and Scholarly Interests My lab is developing innovative gene and stem cell therapies for genetic diseases, with a focus on gene therapy and regenerative medicine.
We have created novel methods for inserting therapeutic genes into the chromosomes at specific places by using homologous recombination and recombinase enzymes.
We are working on 3 forms of muscular dystrophy.
We created induced pluripotent stem cells from patient fibroblasts, added therapeutic genes, differentiated, and engrafted the cells.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests I spent most of my PH.D time on identifying and elucidating the functions of cis-regulatory modules (CRMs) through functional genomic, comparative genomics approaches.
My current projects include:
1) Annotate the human functional sequences using human ENCODE and Mouse ENCODE data.
2) Improve the understanding of personal genomics by combing functional genomics, comparative genomics and population genomics approaches.
3) Relationship between immune system and micro biome.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research involves identifying, validating and integrating scientific facts into encyclopedic databases essential for research and scientific education. Published results of scientific experimentation are a foundation of our understanding of the natural world and provide motivation for new experiments. The combination of in-depth understanding reported in the literature with computational analyses is an essential ingredient of modern biological research.
