Research Interests

Our laboratory uses various types of in-vivo and in-vitro models in combination with integrative 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 of muscle stem cells.

We are committed to promoting diversity, equity and inclusivity (DEI) in our lab and the University. Our lab strives to support an inclusive climate where everyone feels safe, and can perform their best science.
