The Anderson's lab focuses on understanding basics in fundamental biology in stem cells, tissue development and regeneration. In specific, they work on three different pipelines namely, 1) basic and clinical studies directed at understanding the ability of cardiac and fat stem cells to engraft into and regenerate different damaged tissues, 2) Unraveling the role of specific molecules in cardiac and fat stem cells during organ development and disease, and 3) mapping the signaling pathways of these specific molecules to understand their physiological and pathophysiological functions.
This entails manipulation with their cellular levels and activity with the aim of developing diagnostic or intervention products to be used in treatment of different diseases. Furthermore, the group is applying stem cells in several clinical settings evaluating the use of stem cell therapy of multiple diseases for future regenerative medicine.
