Muscle Development and Repair Team

Presentation and background

Muscle stem (satellite) cells (MuSCs), ensure the functional homeostasis of skeletal muscles growth as well as their regeneration upon injury. Deciphering the molecular and cellular features of the MuSC would provide novel insights into their regenerative potential and to improve therapeutic strategies.

In this context our group uses Drosophila as a model and a combination of genetics, live imaging and genomics approaches to uncover general principles governing MuSC biology in vivo.
