Hong-Xiang Liu, Associate Professor in Regenerative Bioscience Center and Department of Animal and Dairy Science, College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, University of Georgia, Athens, Georgia, USA. I received my M.D in 1986 and a Ph.D. in Neuroscience in 1998. My current research focuses on the formation, maintenance, degeneration, and regeneration of taste buds. More specifically, we are demonstrating a new source of stem/progenitor cells for taste buds and defining roles of molecular signaling in taste bud formation and cell renewal.
