We welcome Yuqing Yang to our laboratory. Yuqing is a graduate student in the Division of Experimental Medicine at McGill University. She will be co-supervised by Dr. Colin Crist and Dr. Michael Witcher, investigating whether genome architecture plays an important role in regulating muscle stem cell activity.
Our paper is accepted at Development! Building on our previous work that shows adult muscle stem cells (MuSCs) require low rates of protein synthesis, we now show that within this context some mRNAs required for MuSC stem cell properties are more efficiently translated.
