RESEARCH

In our lab, we are interested in both basic and translational science.  On the translational front we are focused on developing a protein therapeutic for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and other neuromuscular disorders. On the basic science side, we are studying a novel signaling pathway that we have discovered: the role of MuSK as a BMP co-receptor.  In unpublished work we have linked this pathway to maintaining muscle and synapse integrity and are investigating its role in regulating muscle stem (satellite) cells using in vivo cell culture models.
