Our laboratory investigates several aspects of myogenesis using a variety of paradigms and model systems. Much of our research focuses on the cellular and molecular mechanisms that regulate the development and differentiation of skeletal muscle fibers and their respective phenotypes. We are also exploring the mechanisms that control myogenic cell proliferation versus differentiation in both skeletal and cardiac muscle development.
The laboratory is located in the Department of Cell Biology and Anatomy in the Chicago Medical School of Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science. Please navigate the site and contact us with any questions.
