Dr. Natasha Chang


Learning Objectives:

  • Gain insight into the role played by muscle stem cells in the pathophysiology of neuromuscular disease.
  • Understand the approaches that can be undertaken to alleviate muscle stem cell dysfunction in DMD.
  • Learn about next-generation humanized skeletal muscle culture models
  • Gain awareness of the advantages and limitations of 3D culture models
  • Skeletal muscle repair is a coordinated system with multiple players
