Research Interests
  • Satellite cells are resident myogenic stem cells positioned beneath the basal lamina of mature myofibers. These cells differentiate to form nascent myofibers (myotubes) or fuse to injured myofibers for skeletal muscle regeneration and hypertrophy. Numerous studies focusing on cell dynamics such as quiescence, activation, proliferation, and differentiation, have shown that satellite cells exhibit heterogeneities based on the expression patterns of key transcription factors and cellular membrane proteins and determine the cell fate/linage. My research topics have directly focused on characterization of satellite cells based on myofiber types.
