THE SkM LAB

The SkM Laboratory provides opportunities for students interested in pursuing research on cells.

Our Focus

Skeletal muscle injury is extremely common and few therapies exist to improve or speed repair.  The SkM lab studies inflammatory cell regulation of regeneration following skeletal muscle injury in mice.  We are particularly interested in understanding how wnt ligands produced by macrophages influence endothelial integrity and expansion. 

There are a number of research studies that are currently being completed by Health & Exercise Physiology majors in the SkM lab. Research is ongoing.
