Areas of Interest
Stem cell disease correction in mice
One main focus of my lab is to design paradigms for embryonic stem (ES) and induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cell based repair of cardiac and skeletal muscle defects using mouse models of human disease (thin myocardial syndrome, cardiomyopathy, muscular dystrophy). Another focus is to study paracrine non-myocardial factors in Id KO embryos/mice, a model of congenital heart disease and adult fibrotic cardiomyopathy. The ultimate goal is to identify cardiotrophic and myotrophic factors with rescue potential. for additional information please visit: http://njms.umdnj.edu/departments/cell_biology_and_molecular_medicine/labs/fraidenraich/aboutourlab.cfm
