Event Date

1022 Life Sciences

Dr. Vieira’s is a Visiting Researcher with Harvard Medical School and her research focuses on understanding the phenotypic variations of muscle disease, and explore the different signaling pathways involved in this variation. The goal is to find modifier genes that can be therapeutic targets for muscle disorders, especially genes involved in muscle regeneration and/or stem cell activation.
