The major focus of our research projects is to determine the mechanism for cardiac regeneration using different cell-based preparations, including exosomes, condition media, and the stem cells themselves and testing these cell-based products in a variety of regenerative assays. In particular, we are determining how mIRs present in the exosomes derived from the stem cells affect the regenerative process to recover the injured myocardium. Several animal and cell model systems, including conditional gene knockouts, will be used in these research projects, and many state of the art techniques are available, such as real time PCR, CRISPR/Cas9 Genome Editing, confocal microscopy,real time imaging and advanced microscopy, multicolor flow and sorting,HPLC and mass spectrometry, and ultrasonic and telemetric measurements of cardiovascular function in rodents and large animals.
