Read the latest early career blog post, from NMD4C member Dr. Louise Moyle.
Dr. Louise Moyle is a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Toronto, Canada. Her research investigates mechanisms of muscle stem cell dysfunction in neuromuscular disorders, with the aim of transferring this knowledge towards future cell and gene therapies. She completed her PhD in Dr. Peter Zammit’s lab at King’s College London (UK), where she investigated muscle stem cell regeneration in facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy (FSHD). She is currently working in the laboratory of Dr. Penney Gilbert, where she is supported by a Medicine by Design postdoctoral fellowship. This research aims to understand how mechanosensing via the LINC complex contributes to the process muscle stem cell repair, with relevance to Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy.
