Skeletal muscle injury is extremely common, and few therapies exist to improve or speed repair. Dr. Carpenter studies inflammatory cell signaling in skeletal muscle regeneration following injury. She is particularly interested in understanding how wnt ligands produced by macrophages influence endothelial permeability, integrity and expansion. Because anti-inflammatory treatments are often used following muscle injury, she is also interested in how these therapies directly impact inflammation and muscle healing.
