BIOGRAPHY AND RESEARCH INTERESTS
My lab studies how homeodomain transcription factors regulate differentiation of skeletal muscle and cardiac muscle cells. In particular, we focus on the functions of Pbx and Meis proteins. Our goal is to understand how subsets of gene expression during the muscle differentiation process are controlled. We aim to use this understanding to manipulate muscle differentiation and work toward potential therapies for muscle diseases.
