We are interested in the molecular control of myogenesis. Skeletal muscle is the largest tissue in human body. Its formation requires the activation and expansion of muscle stem cells, and subsequent differentiation, fusion and maturation of their progenies. Understanding the mechanisms that drive these cellular events is not only essential to…
