Identification and application of cis-regulatory enhancer elements for muscle stem cell function and muscle regeneration in aging

Dr. Diao plans to apply innovative genomics and genetics tools, to identify enhancer elements that play an essential role in the process of muscle stem cell aging, and to understand the gene regulatory mechanism that could be exploited to rejuvenate the aging phenotype in animals. He ultimately hopes to identify the “molecular handle” that can be utilized to fine tune the gene expression program and rejuvenate muscle stem cells in older adults.
