EPIGENETIC CONTROL OF SKELETAL MUSCLE MASS
Our research interest centers on the dissection of epigenetic and transcriptional mechanisms underlying skeletal muscle mass determination in physiological and disease-related conditions. We aim at investigating how atrophic or hypertrophic stimuli within the extracellular environment are translated into intracellular signals and epigenetic programs that modulate skeletal muscle size.
