How I fell in love with regenerative medicine:
Stem cells hold tremendous therapeutic potential but have had limited applications in the clinical setting, especially for treatment of injured/diseased central nervous system. My bioengineering background could address technical challenges of stem cell-based therapies, leading me to this fascinating area, regenerative medicine.
