Research Interests:
Stem cell, gene therapy, molecular imaging; My laboratory works on gene transfer and stem cell therapy in the heart. We use various reporter genes and reporter probes in conjunction with novel imaging technologies to study these molecular & cellular events. The ultimate goals are to study cardiac gene expression and stem cell survival noninvasively, repetitively, and quantitatively. My clinical interests are nuclear cardiology, echocardiography, and adult congenital heart disease

Wu, Sean, MD, PhDWu, Sean, MD, PhD - Faculty, Medicine: Cardiovascular Medicine
Research Lab: http://www2.massgeneral.org/cvrc/faculty_wu_home.html
Research Interests: My lab seeks to identify mechanisms regulating cardiac lineage commitment during embryonic development and the biology of cardiac progenitor cells in development and disease. We believe that by understanding the transcriptional and epigenetic basis of cardiomyocyte growth and differentiation, we can identify the most effective ways to repair diseased adult hearts. We employ mouse and human embryonic and induced pluripotent stem cells as well as rodents as our in vivo models for investigation.
