Effective regeneration, in skeletal muscle as well as in many other tissues, depends on the coordinated and timely interaction of stromal cells, immune cells and stem cells. The Porpiglia lab employs novel single-cell technologies, such as single-cell mass cytometry (CyTOF), to study the relationships between muscle stem cells and immune cells in aged and dystrophic skeletal muscle. Specifically, our research focuses on understanding how unique interactions between immune cells and muscle stem cells orchestrates effective muscle regeneration and on identifying the cellular interactions and signaling pathways that are impaired during ineffective muscle regeneration, in aging and muscular dystrophies. This research will help us develop strategies to modulate the immune system to boost muscle tissue repair.
