Vice Chair of Research. Associate Professor of Dermatology and of Pathology.
The Myung Lab investigates the processes underlying hair follicle development and regeneration in skin. We combine cutting-edge techniques, including multi-photon imaging, quantitative RNA fluorescent in situ hybridization, single-cell RNA/ATAC sequencing, and CUT&RUN with in vivo mouse genetic models to study the molecular and cellular mechanisms that control embryonic hair follicle development. Our goal is to apply this knowledge in adult skin to promote hair follicle regeneration and wound healing.
Research & Publications
Our research aims to uncover the tissue interactions that govern proper hair follicle development and to understand how these interactions can be repurposed to promote adult hair follicle regeneration and regenerative wound healing.
