Description of Research Interests

Developing animal cloning and genetic engineering technology in cattle and pigs for animal agriculture and biomedicine. My laboratory is also involved in research using embryonic stem cells as a possible treatment for neurodegenerative (Parkinson’s ALS and ALS) and vascular diseases.
