Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine
Research in the Longaker Lab

Dr. Michael T. Longaker has broad experience in pediatric plastic surgery, developmental biology, epithelial biology, tissue repair and tissue engineering. He has extensive research experience in the cellular and molecular biology of extracellular matrix, with specific applications to the differences between fetal and post-natal wound healing, the biology of keloids and hypertrophic scars and the cellular and molecular events that surround distraction osteogenesis with respect to craniofacial development.

Most recently, his research has focused on multipotent mesenchymal cells derived from adipose tissue and their applications for tissue repair, replacement and regeneration. He brings to Stanford his unique understanding of wound healing, fetal wound healing research, developmental biology and tissue engineering.
