Welcome to the Khan Lab

Cardiovascular Stem Cell Therapeutics Lab

The Khan Lab focuses on cardiovascular regeneration through the use of stem-cell therapy. Through reprogramming human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) into cardiac and endothelial lineage for repairing the failing heart tissue as well as discovering the mechanisms and conditions necessary to enhance and ensure the survival and engraftment of stem cells post transplantation into the ischemic myocardium. This therapeutic approach is meant to recover functionality lost in the damaged heart.
