Research Team combines biochemical analysis and systems-level approaches to investigate the connections between cell metabolism, gene expression and their role in novel therapeutic approaches including stem cells and tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. Scientific strengths include researches on wide-ranging topics such as stem cells, genetics and gene expression, medical microbiology and biomaterials compatibilities. Key goals of the research team include collaborative efforts to uncover biological roles of certain RNA-binding proteins in cell metabolism, differentiation and development, help elucidate the role of RNA metabolism in disease, and to develop novel diagnostic and therapeutic strategies.
The physical location of the MCB Laboratory within the research environment of the KSU Medical City offers various potentials to establish a highly interactive and collaborative environment within a large and diverse community of principal investigators, research team leaders and research groups. The substantial assets of the MCB Laboratory is the complementary nature of many of the research groups working in our laboratory that promotes the development of novel approaches to address various topics under Molecular and Cell Biology Research. This is further made possible by the accessibility to a wide range of equipment and state-of-the-art facilities.
