Welcome to the Center of Research in Myology
Created on the 1st of January 2014, the Center of Research in Myology -UMRS974, is a multidisciplinary research center dedicated to muscle and its related pathologies. The objective of the research center is to develop innovative cell, gene and pharmacogenetic therapies, based on an understanding of the molecular pathophysiology of a given disease and therefore adapted to it.
