Research interests

We aim to understand how different muscles are made at the correct position in the body and how their contractile filaments are built to mediate flying, walking or mating.

Research activity

Research

We study how Drosophila makes its muscles. We focus on transcriptions factors that set the fate of the different muscle types, the transmembrane proteins that mediate muscle tendon interactions and hence determine how muscles find the appropriate tendons, and finally we investigate how the various structural proteins built the contractile filaments, the myofibrils and sarcomeres in a muscle-type specific manner
