    Collapse Overview
    Albert E. Almada, PhD is investigating one of the greatest mysteries in muscle regenerative biology—how stem cells rebuild functional muscle tissue after traumatic injury. His multidisciplinary team integrates state-of-the-art experimental and bioinformatic approaches to study this biological phenomenon at the molecular, cellular, and organ level in various animal models and in humans.

    Recently, his laboratory discovered a new “Super-Healing” gene regulatory program, and they are exploring the biology and therapeutic potential of these pro-regenerative molecules in pre-clinical mouse models. Dr. Almada’s long-term goal is to translate his basic science discoveries into effective stem cell-based therapies that restore muscle function to injured athletes, wounded soldiers, the elderly, and patients suffering from degenerative muscular pathologies.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
