The Rasmussen Laboratory conducts biomedical research that aims to improve human health using the tools of epigenetics and stem cell science. Current research in the lab includes studies of epigenetic mechanisms in hepatic cells and hepatocytes derived from stem cells, basic research into epigenetic regulation in pluripotent stem cells as they undergo differentiation, and applied research in teratology.  We also have interests in using epigenetic approaches to alleviate suffering and morbidity in human metabolic disorders through the development of agents that modulate the epigenetic regulation of human genes.
