Jason Pomerantz, MD

Professor in Residence
Department of Surgery
Research Overview: 

Our laboratory studies basic and translational aspects of tissue regeneration. With foundations in muscle and cancer biology, we are investigating regenerative mechanisms of stem cells and of  de-differentiating somatic cells. By employing model organisms such as zebrafish and mouse and extending discoveries to human cells and tissues, we hope to gain fundamental insight that can be translated into clinical advances, most notably solving the structural and reconstructive problems of the limbs, face, and head. 

Primary Thematic Area: 
Developmental & Stem Cell Biology
Secondary Thematic Area: 
Cancer Biology & Cell Signaling
Research Summary: 
Mesenchymal tissue regeneration
