Welcome to the Bhutani lab!
We study stem cell development, reprogramming and regeneration in the musculoskeletal system.
Our laboratory is part of the Department of Orthopedic Surgery in the Stanford School of Medicine. We are affiliated with the Child Health Research Institute, Bio X and the Cancer Biology Program. Our research interests are driven towards understanding the mechanisms that govern and reprogram stem cell fate during development, regeneration and disease. The long-term goal is to translate these fundamental principles towards musculoskeletal repair and regeneration in the clinic.
