UW Bioengineering assistant professor Dr. Deok-Ho Kim is highlighted in a feature on the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) website. Dr. Kim was recently awarded a 3-year grant from MDA to develop better techniques for growing muscle for use in transplantation into a mouse model of Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). The research goal is to generate a functional muscle patch capable of providing long-term muscle strength and regenerative capacity in DMD patients.
