Our Research Group focuses on understanding stem cell biology for therapeutic application in regenerative medicine and immune-related/inflammatory diseases through the use of in vivo developmental and disease models as well as human in vitro modeling systems.
Ing-Ming Chiu, Ph. D. / Distinguished Investigator
Research Field：Neural Stem Cells and Embryonic Stem Cells, Neuroregeneration, Fibroblast Growth Factor, Gene Regulation
Betty Lin-Ju Yen, M. D. / Investigator
Research Field：Human mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) differentiation capacity & immunobiology; human induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) for in vitro disease modeling and drug testing
Sheau-Ling Lee, Ph. D. /Associate Investigator
Research Field：Cellular and molecular identities/interactions/regulation of stem cell niche in brain neurogenesis, regeneration, and their therapeutic implication for neurodegenerative diseases.
Liang-Tung Yang, Ph. D. /Associate Investigator
Research Field：Hair follicle stem cells and Hair cycling, skin development and regeneration. Notch and TGF-beta signaling in the regulation of skin and hair follicle homeostasis.
Hua-Jung Li, Ph. D. /Associate Investigator
Research Field：The goals of our research are to investigate roles of extracellular vesicles (EVs)/exosomes in stem cell homeostasis and to manipulate EV biogenesis of stem cell for disease treatments. From this angle, we develop strategies for treating cancers and neural degeneration diseases.
