Eliciting the power of the immune system to boost muscle regeneration

Our long-term research vision is to develop immunotherapy to boost muscle regeneration in response to traumatic acute injury, as well as in chronic conditions such as aging and muscular dystrophy. We are currently witnessing the success of immunotherapy in the field of cancer. These advances highlight the potential of modulating the immune system in personalized medicine to improve tissue function and patient outcome. Our long-term goal is to investigate and leverage this potential specifically in the muscle and impact outcome in traumatic acute injury, aging and muscle diseases.
