BIO: My current research direction is about cell-cell communication and single-cell analysis. I will work on single-cell multi-modality integration in the future. Spatial single-cell analysis interests me a lot as spatial-level cell-cell communication has a lot to explore.

Research Interests: We will use multimodal approaches; single-cell RNA-seq (scRNA-seq), mass cytometry (cytometry time-of-flight (CyTOF) immune phenotyping), and multiplex imaging to discover the spatial phenotypic signatures of the tumor microenvironment in brain tumors.

Dr. Mishina’s laboratory is interested in functions of BMP signaling during bone development/remodeling and craniofacial development. Several specific projects include mechanisms of how osteoclasts regulate osteoblast functions in a spatiotemporal manner as a downstream event of BMP signaling, cell fate specification mechanisms in cranial neural crest cells towards chondrogenic lineage, impacts of nanofibrous biomaterials as stem cell niche, identification of crossover points between BMP signaling and mechanosensing for bone homeostasis, and investigation of cellular mechanisms of heterotopic bone formation to identify therapeutic options. We fully utilize genetically modified mouse lines in combination of cellular and molecular approaches including single-cell omics to uncover the above mentioned mechanisms.
