Research in the Lin group is focused on muscular dystrophy and mechanisms regulating muscle regeneration. His work has brought novel insights into the pathological mechanisms underlying some types of muscular dystrophy. The Lin group has established essential expertise in generation and differentiation of human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) and CRISPR-mediated genome manipulation technology. We are interested in integrating human iPSC and Organ-on-a-Chip technologies to enable neuromuscular research in health and disease, as well as drug discovery.
