Sheyn Lab

Personal Statement

I have devoted more than 15 years to the research of gene and stem cell therapies. This field holds great therapeutic potential. In my postdoctoral work, I developed an efficient and easily reproducible method to modify stem cells and to regenerate bone defects. The cell therapy approach was tested and found biomechanically valid and new bone tissue was comparable to the native bone."
