Gene Therapy Research

Jacques P Tremblay Research Group

Dr. Tremblay’s laboratory contributes to the development of treatments for Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). We have an extensive expertise in cell transplantation, histology, immunohistology, immunology and gene therapy. We principally focus on the transplantation of normal or genetically modified Muscle Precursor Cells (MPCs) into muscles to restore the dystrophin.
