Faculty Member Brief Research Description
Carlos Andres Aguilar Our lab uses various types of in-vivo and in-vitro models in combination with genomic assays and high-throughput sequencing to study the molecular mechanisms of muscle regeneration, development and adaptation. We are particularly interested in the role of epigenetic and transcriptional regulation (chromatin, DNAme, RNA, miRNA, lncRNA) of muscle stem cells during responses to trauma, aging and exercise and use single-cell profiling, genome editing and cell-based therapeutics to understand these phenomena.

Markus Bitzer Damage and loss of podocytes and parietal epithelial cells leads to progressive loss of kidney function. To identify markers of podocyte damage and parietal epithelial dysfunction, and to develop interventions to ameliorate the course, we transcriptomic, morphometric and clinical outcomes parameter in human kidney tissue and characterize the underlying molecular mechanisms in tissue culture and animal model systems with particular focus on regulatory RNAs.
