Dr. Luis Marrero's Lab


Dr. Marrero's research is focused on the repair of components of human limbs that have been damaged by disease or trauma. Three main projects drive his research and these are designed around his background in the regeneration of limb structures and expertise in histopathology, analysis of protein and RNA expression in situ, and numerous applications of imaging modalities both in vitro and in vivo on animal, non-human primate, and human disease models.
