Created on January 1, 2014, the Research Center in Myology, is a multidisciplinary research center on muscle and its pathologies.
The objective of UMRS 974 is to develop innovative approaches to cell, gene or pharmacogenetic therapies, based on an understanding of the molecular pathophysiology of a given disease, and therefore adapted to it.

  1. Gisèle Bonne Lab – Genetics and pathophysiology of neuromuscular disorders linked to the extracellular matrix and to the nucleus
  2. Marc Bitoun Lab – Muscle cell organization and therapy of dominant centronuclear myopathy
  3. Capucine Trollet and Vincent Mouly Lab –  Cellular and molecular orchestration in muscle regeneration, during ageing and in pathologies
