Young Jang

Assistant Professor
Office Location: 
IBB 3304 & AP 1231
Research Interests: 

Dr. Jang’s lab uses multi-disciplinary approaches to study muscle stem cell biology and develops bioactive stem cell delivery vehicles for use in regenerative medicine. Dr. Jang’s lab studies both basic aspects of muscle stem cell 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.

1. Metabolic regulation of stem cell function

2. Systemic regulation of muscle homeostasis

3. Engineering muscle stem cell niche for regenerative medicine
