Research areas:

Our lab studies neuromuscular signaling pathways involved in formation, maintenaOnce and synaptic plasticity at the neuromuscular synapse and within muscle fibers. Moreover, we are investigating signaling pathways involved in myopathies, which are also related to autophagy (more specific mitophagy). At the neuromuscular synapse, we are looking for changes associated with muscle weakness. We believe that the identification of molecular causes of neuromuscular human pathologies, will provide the rationale for therapeutic interventions of these diseases.
