Work and Research

My research interest focus on Lentiviral mediated gene delivery and expression in mammalian cells. This is aimed to improve the durability of transgene expression in gene therapy approaches. I investigated the role of epigenetics, particularly DNA methylation control on transgene expression mediated by lentivirus in pluripotent cells. I also worked on directed differentiation of induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells towards multipotent hematopoietic stem cell lineage for prospective autologous correction of blood related genetic disorders such as sickle cell anemia.
