Stem Cell and Cell Turnover after Exercise
Principal Investigator: Dr Chung-Yu Chen
Mailing Address: Laboratory of Stem Cell Research, 101 Jhongcheng Rd. Sec. 2, Shihlin District, Taipei, Taiwan 111.
Research Interest: Living in a changing environment, our normal cell turnover rate is ~100 billion per day, balanced by equal rate of cell death and cell regeneration. The turnover rate is subjected to be changed depending on the magnitude of environmental challenge. Stem cell, a set of cell type that is able to self-renew for replacement of aged, unhealthy, or damaged cells in tissues. A research project is going on in our research team to determine the role of stem cell in training adaptation.
