Research interest

Establishment and application of liver disease in animal models of cell-based therapy is an important research direction in recent years. In addition to addressing the effectiveness of cell transplantation therapy, but also explore the impact of cell transplantation and liver reconstruction mechanism.

The molecular mechanism underlying the activation, proliferation and bipotential differentiation into hepatocytes or cholangiocytes of adult liver progenitor cells.
