Hair Biology Lecturer Bio
Dr. Plikus received his PhD degree in Pathology from the University of Southern California, where he worked with Dr. Cheng-Ming Chuong and carried out studies on the mechanism of hair stem cell regeneration. Later he joined Dr. George Cotsarelis at the University of Pennsylvania to work on the wound regeneration. Dr. Plikus is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Developmental and Cell Biology at the University of California, Irvine.
The Plikus’ lab is interested to understand how complex tissues and organs regenerate under normal conditions and in response to injury or disease. One goal is to understand how thousands of stem cells coordinate their activities with one another. Another goal is to understand the natural limits of stem cell plasticity in response to tissue injury.
