Michael Longaker

The Longaker laboratory investigates reparative and regenerative medicine using mouse models of normal wound healing, diabetic wound healing, skeletal regeneration, and craniofacial development. We are interested in adipose-derived mesenchymal cells for tissue repair, in particular skeletal repair.Our lab studies normal and cancer stem cells in the breast and lung in order to develop a deeper understanding of the similarities and differences between these two cell types. We are particularly interested in identifying pathways and genes critical for cancer stem cell function that could be exploited therapeutically.
