Congratulation to Koichi and Tohru as first and second author on a muscle stem cell physiology / rhabdomyosarcoma study that was accepted today to The FASEB Journal. Other lab members who co-authored this work include Bev, Suresh and Mandy - as well as lab alumnist Ali Bahadur. We are grateful for the contributions of our collaborators, especially Chris Bjornson who is a member of the laboratory of Thomas Rando and our pathologist collaborator, Brian Rubin. We are grateful, too, to the Scott Carter Foundation for sponsoring Koichi's fellowship.
