Research lines

Genetics of Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy and related laminopathies of the striated muscle (search for new major and modifier genes)
Set up and maintenance of Locus specific database for LMNA mutations: UMD-LMNA (available on line at www.umd.be/LMNA/)
Development of national patient registry for all types of laminopathies (striated muscle, lipodystrophy, progeroid syndromes…). This registry shall be open to European centers in the future.
Investigation of pathophysiological mechanisms of striated muscle laminopathies (use of to Knock-in mouse models)
Development of therapeutic strategy for striated muscle laminopathies (pharmacological cell and gene-based therapies)


Facilities

Animal facility with cardio musc

ular evaluation including MRI imaging for Knock in mouse models
Histopathology platform for muscle biopsy of both patients and mouse models
Access to immortalized cells platform (myogenic and dermal cells)
Genetic, cell & molecular biology expertise
Access to AVV production plateform
Platforms and expertise available at the Myology Institute are described at http://www.institut-myologie.org/
