• Dr. Xu’s Publication in ACS Chemical Biology

    July 18, 2018

    The term “stem cell” is increasingly stretchy. Orthopedic specialists have been using it when referring to bone marrow concentrate or platelet rich plasma, which are marketed as treatments for joint pain. At Lab Land, we have an interest in pluripotent stem cells, which can differentiate into many types of tissues

  • Dr. Xu Awarded RO1

    May 15, 2018

    The Dr. Chunhui Xu's RO1 award aims to examine stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes in response to a multipronged approach for promotion of cardiomyocyte maturation. Findings from this study will help to address key issues facing applications of cardiomyocytes derived from human pluripotent stem cells in cardiotoxicity testing, disease modeling, developmental biology and regenerative medicine.
