Cellular models for muscle regeneration in vitro: characterization and differentiation of human mesenchymal stem cells derived from adipose tissue and skeletal muscle

Please note that the job is no longer active!

Recent progresses obtained from the use of stem cells for the replacement/repair of organs or tissues, make regenerative medicine one of the most studied research fields. For that reason, cell therapy, as treatment for musculoskeletal disorders, particularly muscular dystrophy, has become a real possibility, thanks to the enormous progress that has been made in clarifying the capacity and the potential of muscle progenitor cells and adult mesenchymal stem cells.The aim of the project is to develop cellular models for the study of myogenic differentiation in vitro using mesenchymal stem cells derived from human adipose tissue and skeletal muscle (satellite cells) in order to characterize the different stages involved in skeletal muscle regeneration

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
