Liu, Fei individual record
Associate Professor

Our laboratory conducts research in (1) the roles of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) in growth and metastasis of cancer and application of MSCs for cancer treatment; (2) Molecular cues for regeneration of salivary glands; and (3) Molecular cues for development and regeneration of tooth root/periodontal tissues.
