Research

The Tajbakhsh group focuses on identifying and characterising skeletal muscle stem cells. They use a genetic approach to examine how skeletal muscle stem cells are born, and how they acquire their identity. They also investigate the cell division mechanisms that govern self-renewal and differentiation during embryonic development and in the adult. They are able to isolate skeletal muscle stem cells for potential therapies using engineered fluorescent markers.
