  • The research in Yin laboratory focuses on adult stem cell populations in skeletal muscle and adipose tissues. We use molecular genetic tools, and small molecule compounds to identify therapeutic targets/agents for skeletal muscle atrophy, injury, muscular dystrophies, obesity and type 2 diabetes. My laboratory uses various transgenic mouse models and primary cell cultures to understand gene functions and to model human diseases. We are particularly interested in characterizing¬†functions of metabolism-related genes, epigenetic/chromatin factors, RNA-binding factors and non-coding RNAs in controlling adult stem cell behaviors (lineage determination, proliferation, differentiation, etc.).
