Available: 10/01/18, Expires: 09/01/19

Our lab is interested in studying genetics of neuromuscular diseases and identifying genetic and chemical regulators of skeletal muscle growth and regeneration. We primarily perform gene discovery in human patients using next generation sequencing approaches, small molecule and genetic screening and mechanistic studies in cellular and zebrafish models. This project is focused on the in vivo analysis of developing skeletal muscle in animal models to identify novel disease pathways in skeletal muscle disorders.


Bibliographic
Publications listed below are automatically derived from MEDLINE/PubMed and other sources, which might result in incorrect or missing publications. Faculty can login to make corrections and additions.
Newest   |   Oldest   |   Most Cited   |   Most Discussed   |   Timeline   |   Field Summary   |   Plain Text
PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
