Research

The overall aim of the laboratory is to better understand the interactions between muscle and its extracellular matrix and the role this interface plays in diseases of muscle. We are approaching this question coming from the muscle membrane as well as from the extracellular matrix taking our leads from different types of limb-girdle muscular dystrophy (LGMD) and congenital muscular dystrophy (CMD).
