Research & Publications
Dr. Yao’s research interest focuses on cellular and molecular mechanisms of Colony Stimulating Factor-1 isoforms in bone. Selective deletion of the isoform in vivo is being pursued to better define their separate roles. The lab also provides a complete vector design and construction for knockout and knockin mice, as well as transgenic mice.
