Research Interests

Our laboratory uses various types of in-vivo and in-vitro models in combination with genomic assays to study the molecular mechanisms of muscle regeneration, after trauma and during aging. We are particularly interested in the role of epigenetic and transcriptional regulation (chromatin, DNAme, RNA, miRNA, lncRNA) of muscle stem cells.

We are committed to promoting diversity, equity and inclusivity (DEI) in our lab and the University. Our lab has attended training on unconscious bias and crucial conversations as well as participated in strategies to support inclusive climates and under-represented minority student success in STEM departments.
