Personal profile

Research interests

My research programme focuses on understanding the role of tissue-specific stem cells in the homeostasis and regeneration of striated (skeletal and cardiac) muscle. I lead a team of researchers in studying the biology of cardiac and skeletal muscle, using the techniques of cellular and molecular biology/physiology. Projects within my laboratory investigate:

  • Cell homeostasis and response following injury
  • Regeneration and repair therapies using resident stem-progenitor cells
  • The role of stem-progenitor cells in adaptive response to physiological exercise stimuli
  • The identification of mechanisms that govern stem-progenitor cell fate.
  • The effects of ageing and pathological status on stem-progenitor cell biology
