My research focuses on the formation of muscle cell identities and how this is regulated during muscle regeneration via the satellite cells. One of my goals is to find ways to control the regeneration of certain muscle cell fates. I also study how different genetic backgrounds influence the progression of muscle derived rhabdomyosarcoma tumours.

I and the members in my research group use the zebrafish model system and I am resposible for the Umeå Zebrafish Facility (UZF).
