Dissecting stromal contribution to the resident stem cell niche

 

The Peng Lab is interested in how the stromal compartment integrates extracellular cues to modify the niche, with a focus on the niche supporting resident tissue stem cells. We utilize complex murine genetic models and human specimen to interrogate how distinct stromal compartments maintain organ homeostasis, initiate disease, and drive tissue aging. Our lab utilizes the lung as a model organ due to its immense cellular diversity and architectural complexity.  

 

Research

Our laboratory studies how key developmental pathways continue to persist in adulthood to maintain normal homeostatic organ function.
