research focus: 

Development of novel stem cell and gene based therapies for human disease. Development of therapies based on hematopoietic stem cells for genetic disease, mesenchymal stem cells for cardio-respiratory injury, and respiratory progenitors for CF and other lung disorders. Human embryonic stem cells, genes regulating self-renewal to improve the culture of self-renewing stem cells, and regulated differentiation towards the respiratory lineages. Generation of human iPSC.
