The role of the LIM-homeobox gene Lhx2 in stem cell function, organ development and disease, implications for regenerative medicine

Research group Our research interest is focused on the molecular and cellular mechanisms regulating stem cells, organ development and diseases associated with these processes. We have shown that the gene Lhx2 is involved in all these processes.
