Research SummaryResearch focuses on studying the role of protein tyrosine phosphatases in skeletal development and diseases. By taking a gene loss of function approach, studying the role of the Src homolgy 2 domain containing protein tyrosine phosphatase Shp2 in chondrogenesis and osteoclastogenesis.
Past or Present Projects Available:Regulation of the proliferation and chondrogenic differentiation of the perichondrial precartilaginous stem cells by FGF18/FGFR3 signaling.
Role of PTPase Shp2 in the regulation of osteoclastogenesis
