Children's Hospital is part of the UPMC family.
Children’s discovery of certain muscle-derived stem cells offers promising approaches to development treatments for the devastating disease Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Another area of stem cell research explores ways to speed recovery from muscle injuries by blocking the formation of scar tissue, which typically slows the healing process. Regeneration of muscle, cartilage, nerves and other tissues are all areas of exploration.
The lab is supported in part by grants from the National Institutes of Health, Department of Defense, Muscular Dystrophy Association, Jesse’s Journey Foundation, The Hirtzel Foundation, and Cook Myosite. One of the unique aspects of the lab is its size in terms of personnel, which along with its strong base of funding, reflects the importance of the work being done.
