Several pathological conditions of the skeletal muscle (myopathies, dystrophies and age-related
atrophy) represent a burden for health care system. Satellite cells are postnatal resident myogenic precursors
present in the skeletal muscles throughout the entire lifespan. The identification of novel therapeutic strategies
able to enhance their regenerative capacity is one of the most promising tools to compensate muscle
degeneration and to restore functional muscle performance in patients and elderly. Our research activity is
aiming to contribute to this crucial topic.
