Previous Training: Northeastern University (B.S.) and Case Western Reserve University (M.S.) An outstanding issue in stem cell-based therapies is that current directed differentiation protocols of human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) into muscle generate immature embryonic myocytes and skeletal muscle progenitor cells (SMPCs). In order to…
