Research summary

My lab is interested in adipose tissue function, heterogeneity, and their developmental origins.  Focusing on adipose progenitors/stem cells (APs), we are investigating the functional heterogeneity APs between different depots and their unique gene expression pathways during normal development as well as in diseased conditions (e.g. obesity). We also study the interactions of APs with their neighbouring cells including vasculatures and immune cells.
