Research Statement:

Human lung development is largely unknown and what is known has been interpreted from loss-of-function mouse models.  my research program goal is to advance our understanding of the molecular and cellular processes that drive human lung development and disease, leading to improved derivation of lung tissue from pluripotent stem cells, and translating into novel stem cell-derived therapies for lung diseases.
