Jang lab uses multi-disciplinary approaches to study muscle stem cell biology and develops bioengineering tools for regenerative medicine applications. Jang lab studies both basic aspects of musculoskeletal biology, especially systemic/metabolic regulations of stem cell and stem cell niche, as well as more translational aspects of muscle stem cell and mesenchymal stem cell for use in therapeutic approaches for musculoskeletal aging, neuromuscular diseases, and traumatic injuries.
