Assistant Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery and of Bioengineering
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our research seeks to understand how microenvironmental cues regulate stem cell fate, and to develop novel biomaterials and stem cell-based therapeutics for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. Our work spans from fundamental science, technology development, to translational research.We are particularly interested in developing better therapies for treating musculoskeletal diseases, cardiovascular diseases and cancer.
Associate Professor of Neurology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Elucidate biological functions of cytoskeletal associated proteins in neurons. Define the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying neurodegeneration in null mice.
Yunzhi Peter Yang
Associate Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery and, by courtesy, of Materials Science and Engineering
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Yangs research interests are based on bio-inspired biomaterials and approaches for re-creating a suitable microenvironment for cell growth and tissue regeneration, including enabling technology for bone regeneration, nanotechnology for dental and orthopedic implant devices, and naturally-based biomaterials for cancer treatment.
