About the Lab:

Dr. Leung is a physician-scientist who has trained in gene regulation and developmental biology. His group studies how injured tissues heal, and in some cases, how injured tissues regenerate without a scar. As a junior faculty member, Dr. Leung is committed to training the next generation of researchers. The Leung lab provides training in the following broad areas, including transcription specificity, gene regulation, genomics, mouse genetics, developmental biology, human organoid culture, human genetics, and epigenetics. In addition, Dr. Leung co-directs the monthly Stem Cell Club.

Training Information:

In the few short years since its start, the NIH R01- and VA-Merit funded Leung Lab has been home to multiple undergraduate, medical, and PhD graduate stundets. Five postdoctoral fellows have been mentored by Dr. Leung, and they have successfully secured independent funding and hold positions in academia and the private sector.
