[960] Cell Therapy & Musculoskeletal Disorders

Our research group focuses on the study and improvement of muscle regeneration and the treatment of osteoarthritis.

Myogenic stem cell transplantation is a promising approach in the treatment of severe muscle damage as well as in the modulation of inflammation in osteoarthritic patients.

We have 2 main areas of research. We want to better characterize, in vitro, human myogenic stem cells in order to improve their survival and their regenerative capacity after transplantation. We also want to study the anti-inflammatory capacities of these cells in experimental models of osteoarthritis in mice.
