Breu explicació del projecte / Brief explanation of your project
One outstanding feature of the skeletal muscle is its capacity to regenerate. This capacity declines with aging and during the progression of degenerative muscle diseases, therefore impacting productiveness and quality of life of people. The decline in the regeneration capacity is accompanied by increasing inflammation and the presence of fibrosis and senescent cells in the muscle microenvironment. The aim of my project is to study if cellular senescence affects the regeneration of the skeletal muscle. Our goal is to envision new pathways to improve or restore muscle regeneration in aging and halt disease progression in patients.
