Xiaowen Bai, PhD
Associate Professor, Medical College of Wisconsin
Dr. Xiaowen Bai's research interests are centered around the application of stem cells for disease modeling and tissue regeneration. She has authored more than 80 research articles, reviews, and book chapters, all of which focus on stem cell-based tissue regeneration, disease modeling, and drug testing. Currently, her laboratory is primarily focused on investigating the molecular mechanisms underlying the roles of non-coding RNAs, mitochondria, and genetic factors in heart and brain injury in mice. To translate these findings to humans, Dr. Bai's lab utilizes human-induced pluripotent stem cell-derived tissue-specific cell culture and organoid models.
