The focus of our research lab is to develop novel approaches to tissue repair, replacement and regeneration, with a particular interest in the role and utility of adipose-derived cells and factors. Our lab has extensive experience with the isolation, culture, characterization, and application of adipose-derived cells since describing their presence in a seminal patent (‘231) and peer-reviewed publications reflecting work started in the mid 1990s. As a clinician, I am particularly interested in exploring novel strategies for tissue repair and wound healing that have the potential to be translated to patients in need of better reconstructive options and outcomes than currently available. Like others on the team, I am intrigued by the non-scarring response of the spiny mouse, and our lab is now engaged in characterizing the putative stem and progenitor cells within spiny mouse adipose and dermis.
