Many neuromuscular disorders remain without adequate therapies due to a lack of suitable models in which to study mechanisms and test possible interventions. This research program combines novel gene- and cell-based approaches to generate new in vitro and in vivo models of neuromuscular disorders (including Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, and FacioScapulohumeral Dystrophy), in order to (a) study the underlying mechanisms of action and (b) devise novel therapeutic strategies.
