Dr. Bénédicte Chazaud is the Director of Research and Team Leader at the Institut NeuroMyoGène in Lyon, France.
Our research is dedicated to the role of environmental cells on adult muscle stem cell behavior in skeletal muscle regeneration. Our lab was pioneer in bringing the concept of a stromal support that directly act on muscle stem cells to regulate and promote an efficient muscle regeneration. The goal of our current studies is to decipher the molecular mechanisms underlying the cell interactions that allow a proper myogenesis in normal muscle regeneration and during degenerating myopathies.
