Our research focus on the formation of muscle cell identities and how this is regulated during muscle regeneration via the satellite cells. One of our goals is to find ways to control the regeneration of certain muscle cell fates. We also study how different genetic backgrounds influence the progression of muscle derived rhabdomyosarcoma tumours.
We use the zebrafish model system and are resposible for Umeå Zebrafish Facility (UZF).
