Summary

I have been conducting my research in the field of animal cloning using somatic cell nuclear (SCNT) technique for more than a decade. I have been a member of Dan Garry lab since 2016 and participated in establishing pig embryonic experiments including SCNT, blastocyst complementation and embryo transfer surgery in this lab. My current collaborative research focus is on the generation of humanized tissue in pig models by engineering human-pig chimeras.
