Our main objective is to understand the mechanisms regulating stem cell homeostasis and regenerative functions: how stem cells maintain quiescence, are activated, transit to proliferative expansion and differentiation, and finally self-renew, and how they interact with the external inflammatory environment. Research is specially focused on stem cells of skeletal muscle.
