RESEARCH INTERESTS:

Dr. Ren-Ke Li’s research focuses on translational research to apply new insights discovered through basic science research to clinical applications for heart regeneration and repair after myocardial infarction. His research areas includes: Cell transplantation into damaged myocardial tissue to regenerate myocardium and restore heart function and Tissue engineering to create a muscle graft using stem cells in combination with biomaterials for repair of cardiac defects. He has used stem cells; gene therapy and tissue engineering technique to regenerate and rejuvenate heart for restore heart function.
