Research Project Information

My main project involves isolating mouse Adipose derived stem cells (ADSCs) from young and old Wild type (Wt), mdx, and dKO mice and characterizing them by examining their proliferation and multi-lineage differentiation capacities in vitro. My projects also involve investigating origin of cells responsible for ectopic fat cell formation in skeletal muscle in DMD and examining mechanism of increased adipogenesis in skeletal muscle.
